Sista Felicia Iced Tea (with directions this time)

Ice Tea

Perfect for these hot summer days and nights. This Ice Tea is a delicious refreshing beverage, sure to complement any summer time meal.

Step 1:Combine water, sugar and mint in a large pot


Step 2:Place pot over a high heat


Step3: Bring to a rolling boil


Step4: Select a flavor/verity of tea. I like to use tea pods simply to cut down on prep time, avoiding having to remove the paper


Step 5: Collect 36 tea pods or bags with paper tabs removed and set aside

Step6: Carefully remove pot from heat and add 36 tea pods to hot mint infused sugar water


.Step7: Steep tea for 20 minutes.

Step 8: Using your hand or 2 large slotted spoons squeeze pods to extract tea


Step9: Dispose used pods

Step10: Place 10 cups ice into a drink dispenser


Step11: Cut 1 lemon in half

Step12: Squeeze the lemon into the drink dispenser directly over the ice and remove any seeds


Step13: Carefully pour tea into dispenser and stir


Step14: Fill a tall tumbler glass with ice and fill with yummy tea garnish with a sprig of mint or lemon or both!
