Homemade Unsweetened Iced Tea Recipe Homemade Unsweetened Iced Tea is the perfect companion on those warm summer days, refreshing, brisk, flavorful, filled with antioxidants and low on calories! For this recipe, all you need is a teabag or teabags depending on how much you want to make, water, and ice. To start it off you are going to want to have a decent sized pitcher, jug or jar to put your water and teabags in. The standard measurements for this are approximately 8 ounces of water for every teabag. For example, 64 ounces or a half gallon pitcher will need around 8 teabags. After you have established how much tea you are going to make with the allotted amount of space and tea you have to work with, go ahead and throw it all together and cover it. After this, you are going to want to set your container in the fridge for around 8 hours. When you come back to your tea, it should have developed some lovely, bold color. Go ahead and remove the teabags, you are now ready to pour it over some ice in your favorite glass. You can add a little bit of lemon juice or a lemon wedge to your iced tea for some natural sweeteners. If you are looking for a stronger flavored iced tea, you just simply reduce the amount of water you are using in the steeping process from 8 ounces of water to 6 ounces of water per teabag. This will make the tea extra bold and crisp.

How long to steep tea bags? Steeping your teabags will generally depend on who you ask and what kind of brew you are making. For your standard hot tea, you can steep for anywhere from 3 to 15 minutes, after 15 minutes in hot water, most of the antioxidants are already drawn from the bag and may actually start to ruin the flavor and make it more bitter. For a lot of cold brew recipes steeping will range from just around 2 hours upward to 12 plus hours. Although you can't over steep a cold brew, you usually want to remove your teabags from the cold brew around the 12-hour mark to keep from bitter flavors.

Let the tea steep for 3 to 15 minutes and remove the bags. You can now pour your tea over some ice in your favorite glass, add some, honey, sugar or lemon and enjoy!
