 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      quarts        water
      1/4  cup           tea -- loose
      3/4  cup           sugar
 
 Bring 1 quart of the water to a boil, add tea and remove from heat.  Let
 steep for 4 minutes. Steeping time can vary depending on how strong you
 like you tea but I have found anything over 5 minutes and it starts to get
 bitter.
 Strain thru a strainer.
 
  DO NOT PRESS THE TEA TO EXTRACT - pressing will make it better also.  I
 just dump the tea and water thru the strainer, shake it a time or two and
 throw the tea out.
 
 Add the sugar, more of less can be used depending on how sweet you like you
 tea, and stir till the sugar is dissolved.  Add the remaining quart of
 water and leave on the counter to cool. DO NOT place directly in the
 refirgerator as that will make it cloudy.
 
 I have found that this make the best Iced Tea around and you don't have to
 try and dissolve sugar in cold water,  which never seems to work for me.
 
 My two favorite flavored teas right now are mango tea and one I found
 called Arctic Fire.  The Arctic Fire I found in a cooking store in the
 Pocono’s and took it to my local tea shope in Harrisburg.  She found it
 thru a small distributor and now can't keep it in stock.
 
 If you find any other teas that make good iced tea please let me know.
