- 6 bags of tea - I like Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice OR Sweet and Spicy by Good earth
- 8 cups water
- 8 cups ice cubes (about 4 ice cube trays)
- 1 lemon or orange, cut to slices (optional for serving)
- cinnamon sticks (optional for serving)
Place the eight cups of water in a tea kettle and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Add the tea bags to the hot water and let steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags from the water.
In a large pitcher add the eight cups of ice cubes (or about 4 trays of ice cubes). Slowly pour the tea over the ice cubes.
Place the pitcher in the fridge until iced tea has become cold OR fill a tall glass with ice, pour the tea from the pitcher into the ice-filled glass and serve.
Add a lemon or orange and cinnamon stick slice to each glass of iced tea if desired.
Keep iced tea in a covered container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
