 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------STEP 1-----------------------------------
  • 8 c Strong tea (8 cups boiling
  • -water +16 teabags; left to
  • -steep for 5 minutes)
  • 1/2 c Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • -(approx 2 large lemons)
  • 1/2 -(up to)
  • 3/4 c Sugar (or more to taste)


Grated peel from lemons

Step 1 method: Pour steeped tea into a pitcher. Add the sugar. Add the
lemon juice. Stir, taste for adjust for sweetness.

Note: Before you add the lemon juice (fresh squeezed is mandatory), the
tea should taste quite bitter, undrinkable alone. Once you add the lemon
juice it turns colour, (the lemon juice seems to bleach it) and then add
sugar until you're happy with the taste.

Step 2 method: My technique is to put the grated rind in a metal sieve
(one with really tiny holes), place the sieve on top of a large measuring
cup or pitcher that holds 8.5 cups of liquid, and pour the hot, strong tea
mixed with the lemon juice and sugar through it, and repeat several times.
