So I am posting my husbands tea recipe.
Our Southern Peach Tea
a gallon of cold filtered water
4 family sized tea bags
2 peach tea bags (We like celestial seasonings Country Peach Passion)
1 c sugar (or more to your taste)
Starting with cold filtered water is a must. Just like you can't make good coffee with bad water you can't make good tea with funky water either. Heat your water to very hot but not quite boiling. We use an electric tea kettle but a pot on the stove works just as well. Pour the hot water into a pitcher. Add the sugar, and stir till it dissolves. If this step takes more than a couple of seconds your water isn't hot enough. Now add the tea bags and push them down gently into the water with the spoon. Don't stir and always add the tea bags after the water so you don't bust one. Let cool. When the tea is a dark chestnut color, gently lift the tea bags out and toss. Stir and chill.
Making homemade tea is simple. Paying attention to the details makes all the difference.
Do you make tea at home? I'm interested in how much sugar you do or don't put in.
