It is a very refreshing drink and can be made easily at home in a very short time.

iced tea

For iced tea, use approximately 1 tablespoon of tea per 5 to 6 ounces of hot water and let it steep for up to 10 minutes. Drinking it cold reduces the tannin pucker, and ice will dilute it.

8 tea bags of any good-quality black tea
1 medium lemon or orange
8 cups simmering water
Rich Simple Syrup (optional)
Place the tea bags in a large heatproof glass pitcher. Use a vegetable peeler to strip the peel from the lemon or orange, avoiding as much of the white pith as possible, and add the peel to the pitcher.
Pour the simmering water into the pitcher and let it steep for at least 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and discard. Refrigerate the tea until cool.
To serve, fill iced tea glasses with ice and pour the tea over the ice. Sweeten with simple syrup, if desired.
