  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 7 cups filtered water
  • 6 tablespoons black loose tea 17.5 grams
  • 3/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed is best

  3. In a saucepan, bring the remaining 6 cups of water to a boil. 
  4. Add black tea leaves and steep for 5-8 minutes. (You can place tea leaves in a French sieve or brewing bag for ease of removal or simply steep them loose and strain to remove).

  5. Remove tea leaves.

  6. Add the sugar to the tea while it’s still hot and stir to dissolve.

  7. Add the lemon juice.

  8. Stir all together and pour through a fine mesh strainer into serving pitcher. 

  9. Serve over ice and garnish with strawberry, mint or lemon slice.

Recipe Notes

You can use any black tea to make iced tea but high grown teas like Nilgiri and Ceylon (Sri Lanka) teas work especially well with fruit infused iced tea.
