Lemon Iced Tea

I seriously don't know why we pay an atrocious price for a glass of iced tea in restaurants.....I mean....its like ...super super simple to make iced tea at home.......having said that...I am still going to have iced tea when I go to a restaurant tomorrow....but.....I am going to think 'Why the hell am I paying so much for this?' and .............  'I can make better iced tea for sure'

This Iced tea is for Pops....who once walked into a restaurant and ordered for Iced tea without Ice!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 Tea Bags (I used Taj.....wah taj ;)
  • 6 cups Water
  • Juice of 1 1/2 lemon (small)
  • Sugar to taste
  • 2 tbsp Mint leaves
  • Lemon rings
  • 3 cups Ice cube

  1. Heat 6 cups of water in a big vessel on high flame.When the water comes to a boil,take off the flame and toss in the tea bags. Cover for 3 to 4 minutes (not more than that or the tea will taste bitter).Remove the tea bags and squeeze to remove excess liquid.Discard.
  2. Transfer the hot black tea into a pitcher or jug. Add sugar,adjust to your taste.Mix till sugar dissolves.
  3. Add lemon juice and mix well.
  4. Keep the tea in the refrigerator to chill.
  5. Just before serving add ice,lemon rings and mint leaves
