Iced Tea

Cuisinart original

Double brewing tea makes for a delicious iced tea. Serve immediately over ice or chill in the refrigerator. The recipe below calls for black tea, but any tea can be iced. Teas and tastes vary - so feel free to experiment with the amount of tea to use to find your favorite strength. Doubling works well for black tea, but go a little less for green.


Makes four 8-ounce drinks
