Let’s explore the secrets to creating the perfect iced tea, from selecting the right tea leaves to perfecting the brewing process.

Ingredients you need:

•    High-quality tea leaves (loose tea or tea bags)

Follow these steps:

Step 1- Fill your tea pot with water and bring it to a boil. 

Step 2- Add the desired amount of tea leaves into a tea infuser or directly into the pot. Use one teaspoon of loose tea leaves. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and let them steep for the appropriate amount of time according to the type of tea you're using.
