Classic Iced Tea Recipe


  • 4 cups of water
  • 4 to 6 tea bags (black tea, green tea, or a mix of both, depending on your preference)
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • Lemon slices (optional)
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)
  • Ice cubes


  1. Boil the Water: In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the 4 cups of water to a boil. Once it's boiling, remove the saucepan from the heat.

  2. Add Tea Bags: Add the tea bags to the hot water and let them steep for about 3 to 5 minutes. If you prefer stronger tea, you can steep it for a bit longer, but be careful not to oversteep, as it can lead to a bitter taste.

  3. Sweeten the Tea: After the steeping time, remove the tea bags from the water. Add the granulated sugar to the hot tea and stir well until the sugar is completely dissolved. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste preference or use alternative sweeteners like honey or agave syrup if you prefer.

  4. Chill the Tea: Allow the sweetened tea to cool down to room temperature. Once it has cooled, you can place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour. Alternatively, you can speed up the cooling process by pouring the tea over a glass filled with ice.

  5. Serve: Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the chilled tea over the ice. If desired, you can garnish each glass with lemon slices and fresh mint leaves for an extra touch of flavor and presentation.

  6. Enjoy: Your classic iced tea is now ready to enjoy! Sip and savor the refreshing goodness, especially during warm weather or whenever you need a thirst-quenching beverage.

Feel free to get creative with this recipe by adding different fruit slices like orange or peach, or even experimenting with herbal tea blends for unique flavors. Enjoy your delicious homemade iced tea!
