Easy Recipe: Home Made Ice Tea

Hello, everyone! One of my readers asked if I could do a tutorial about making ice tea yourself, and since I made ice tea anyway today, I thought that why not? I hope you'll like it! This recipe is super easy, yet the result is very tasty and refreshing on hot Summer days.

For home made ice tea, you will need:

♥ A jug (preferably with a lid)
♥ Good quality tea of your choice
♥  A brewing pouch (paper or cloth)
♥ Ice cold water
♥ (Honey, sugar and/or lime/lemon juice/slices, ice cubes)

How to:

Put the tea in the pouch, and the pouch in the jug. Pour as cold water on top of the pouch as you can possibly get. Put a lid on the jug, and put it in the fridge for 1,5-2 hours. After that, take the tea pouch away and stir the ice tea with a spoon. If you like, you can add some sugar, honey, lemon or lime juice or slices into it. You may also add some ice cubes. Now all that's left to do is to enjoy it!

Other tips:

I personally like green tea as ice tea the most, however this is of course a matter of taste. In my opinion, green tea tastes the most fresh. Green teas spiced with flowers, berries, lemon or lime are my favourites, although coconut ice tea is surprisingly delicious too. I have also made "ice tea" with red grapefruit roiibos, though of course roiibos is not tea and it was technically not ice tea, but rather ice infusion. There are no limits to what teas you can make ice tea from; you'll find your own favourites by trying.

  1. Kiitos tästä! :D Hyvä vinkki tulevia piknikkejä varten, jos sää suosii.

    1. Ole hyvä! Itsetehty jäätee on ihan paras piknik-juoma, etenkin jos jättää sokerit ja hunajat pois. Se on tosi raikas ja vie janon erittäin hyvin, paremmin kuin vesi, imo. :)

  2. Thank you so much! Looks delicious :)

  3. Nice recipe, thank you! But in the 3rd paragraph I think you mean to say frigde, not a freezer, unless the tea is supposed to be actually made of ice... :)

    1. Glad to hear you like it! And thank you for correction, I hadn't noticed that typo at all! I'll correct it. :O
