Homemade ice tea

In the summer I like having a fresh batch of ice tea in our fridge every day. I make the tea early in the evening, let it cool and then refrigerate it. We use the (Korken) bottles from Ikea for this.IcedT2

I make different iced tea every day. I am just listing some inspiration for you below. The process is always the same:

  1. Combine all ingredients with 1 to 2 liters of boiling water (depending on the size of your bottle).
  2. Add extra sweetener to taste, remember that cold drinks will need more flavoring!
  3. Stir and let it stand for at least 30 minutes.
  4. After cooling, transfer to a bottle or container and refrigerate.
  5. Serve with some fresh ingredients such as citrus slices or fresh spices.
