Quick at home iced tea

simple iced tea

Welcome to the hottest day yet this summer. It was 30°C  in Ottawa today, but I beat the heat with this super simple iced tea.

This tea is simple to make, and I like that its taste is simple too.

Two tea bags (black tea, like red rose)
A whole lemon sliced into coins or half coins
lots of water

A kettle
A tea pot
A large pitcher

Step 1
Get your water boiling in the kettle. I always chose my largest tea pot, to make the tea in. Throw the two tea bags into your pot, and when the water is boiled pour it into the pot, just like you were making it for friends. Then stick it in the fridge until it’s comfortable to touch.

Step 2:
Slice your lemon and place it in the pitcher along with your ice cubes. Pour the chilled tea into the pitcher with the lemons and ice

Step 3:
Add a few pieces of ice and a slice of lemon to a pretty cup and enjoy!

Simple as that!
