Summer Tea Series: Part 1 Classic black iced tea

Here it is...the first installment of the Summer Tea Series. I know, I know it's super exciting. I decided to start off with classic black tea for the first edition (after all, it's classic). Unsweetened iced tea is really easy to make and great to have on hand. It's a lot healthier than any soda and a lot tastier than water.Keep in mind, this recipe can work with any flavor tea bag. The lovely pitcher I have (courtesy of Mame) holds 10 cups so you may have to adjust the amount of tea based on the size of your pitcher.

5 tea bags (decaffeinated black tea)
10 cups water
lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup of sugar ( you can add more or less depending on your liking)

Bring 10 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Once there's a steady boil, remove from heat and place tea bags in hot water. Let the water (tea) get to room temperature. Remove tea bags once tea is at room temperature. Add lemon juice and sugar. Transfer to pitcher and you're ready to serve.
