Nine easy-to-make iced tea recipes

Diverse brew methods steeped in hibiscus, pomegranate and bourbon

Iced tea is easy. It’s inexpensive and it’s refreshing. So why buy ready-made? Here are a few recipes.

 

Sweet Tea

Serves 4

Got a serious sweet tooth? Then this traditional Southern-style iced tea is for you. (You could decrease the sugar but then it wouldn’t be authentic, would it?) The recipe is from Martha’s American Food by Martha Stewart (Clarkson Potter, 2012).

Bring 4 cups (1 l) of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Add 6 black tea bags; let steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and discard. Stir in 3/4 cups (180 mL) of sugar until dissolved. Let cool. Transfer to a pitcher. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 3 days. Serve over ice, garnished with mint sprigs.

Looseleaf Cold Brew

Makes 1 gallon (4.5 l)

You don’t have to boil water to make iced tea. The cold-brew method, in which tea leaves steep in cold water for several hours or overnight, produces iced tea with less caffeine. This recipe is from Fred Thompson’s book Iced Tea (Harvard Common Press, 2002). Make it with loose leaves of any type.

Use superfine sugar, which dissolves more quickly than regular granulated sugar.

1 gallon (4.5 l) cold water

3 tbsp (45 mL) tea leaves

1 cup (250 mL) superfine sugar, or to taste

Lemon wedges and mint leaves, for garnish

Fill a one-gallon (4.5-l) container with the cold water. Add the tea leaves, cover tightly and shake to combine. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator or place in full sunlight for 3 to 4 hours.

Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean glass container and stir in the sugar until it dissolves. Chill and serve over ice……
