Ingredients

  • 3 to 5 tea bags, depending on how strong you want your tea

Directions

Put the tea bags in a heatproof container and pour in the boiling water. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags. Add the sugar while the tea is still warm and stir to dissolve the sugar. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
