If you decide to brew a batch of refreshing of iced tea at home, here are some tips to help you make the best pitcher of iced tea.

Use Filtered Water when making iced tea

While the quality of the tea is important, water is also a big part of the process when making iced tea. Use filtered water with your tea, and use also filtered water for the ice you will use because it makes a difference. About temperature, just under boiling is good (about 190-195 degrees Fahrenheit – 175 for delicate teas). Boiling water will remove some of the chemical flavors of tap water such as chlorine. When heating up water, make sure to do it on the stove instead of using the microwave because the heat will be evenly distributed.

Use a good ratio of tea and water

Make sure that proportions are even. A good basic rule is to use a level teaspoon of loose leaf tea to every eight ounces of cold filtered water. If using tea bags, one bag is proportional to 16 ounces of liquid. To avoid diluting the flavor of your tea when pouring over ice, make ice cubes out of the actual tea!

Allow your iced tea to sit for at least 45 minutes at room temperature before chilling it. Abrupt temperature changes can alter the delicate flavors of the tea, and make your refrigerator run unnecessarily.
