1. Put tea in a small bowl. Put at least 10
ounces of water into your kettle and
select the Black setting. Pour 8 ounces
of the hot water over tea and let steep
3 to 5 minutes. Strain. Refrigerate tea
until chilled.
2. Put the ice in a tall glass. Pour the chilled,
steeped tea over the ice and stir in the
simple syrup. Adjust sweetness to taste.
*While you can purchase simple syrup at
gourmet shops, it is easy to make at home
(and less expensive). To prepare, add equal
parts granulated sugar and water to a small
saucepan set over medium-low heat. Let
mixture heat until all of the sugar has
dissolved. Cool mixture to room
