Strawberry Lemon Ice Tea

Strawberry Lemon Ice Tea

As summer heats up, everyone needs something to cool off.  This Strawberry Lemon Ice Tea  will help you make it through those hot, hot days.

Instead of making hot tea, I make cold tea.  This does take a little longer to make but is worth the time. Cold tea then can be used to make a wonderful drink or can be enjoyed as a cold drink with some ice.  To make the cold tea I add 3 -4 tea bags (I usually use black tea) in 1 gallon of water, let sit for at least 8 hours.  You can also brew your tea in the sun.  Once the tea is brewed, place in fridge.
