My creative iced tea are traditional and unique. These ice tea blends are tested and tasted for ice teas. Most of the Ice Tea blends, you can make for hot and cold...but made for Ice Tea. How to make ice teas: Example: if you are making 2 guarts, you steep 1 quart of tea, then you fill the other quart with ice. ( give or take: ajust to taste ) Amount of loose leaf used: 2 tablespoon for 2 quarts: 4 tablespoon for 1 gallon(give or take...depends on how week or strong you like your ice tea.) Make sure you stir sweetner of any kind until desolved while tea is hot. It is also good to chill your tea over night...if you dont want to add ice.
