How to Make Flash Chilled Iced Tea

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Bring freshly drawn water up to desired temperature according to the type of tea you're making.
  2. Scoop loose leaf tea into an infuser or T-Sac using 1tsp for each 8oz of water. (If your cup is 16oz use 2tsp.)
  3. Place infuser or T-Sac into a measuring cup you're going to steep the tea in and pour the hot water over the top of the leaves allowing them to swirl around and open. (Use 1/2 the amount of water to make a tea concentrate. For a 16oz glass of iced tea, use 8oz of water)
  4. Steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preferences.
  5. While your tea is steeping, take the glass you're going to drink out of and fill it to the top with ice.
  6. When time is up on you tea, remove infuser or T-Sac.
  7. Add milk or sugar to taste.
  8. Pour the hot concentrate over the glass full of ice. (If you've measured everything out correctly, you should end up with a full glass of chilled tea with about 1/3 of ice at the top.)
  9. Sip and be refreshed!
