It’s been raining for several days in Florida, and what better way to beat the rainy day blah feelings than by brewing up a small batch of sweet iced tea? The original Lipton recipe calls for 8 cups water, 2 tea bags, and 1/2 cup sugar. Stick it in the fridge for several hours. If you want a fast Lipton iced tea, steep 4 cups of water with 2 tea bags and stir in 1/2 cup sugar. Then, add 6 cups ice cubes! Here is the recipe I made today:
- 1 bag Lipton Iced Tea
- 4 cups water
- 1/4 cup white sugar + 1/8 cup more if you want it sweeter
- Boil 4 cups of water and pour into a large Pyrex with the tea bag. Let steep 3-5 minutes.
- Remove tea bag and stir sugar in. I like to add 1/4 cup sugar when I want a basic sweet tea but if I’m looking to have a really sweet drink I add the extra 1/8 cup in there!
