You don’t have to be from Alabama to enjoy refreshing iced tea on a hot summer day. Our special Strawberry twist makes this tasty treat especially nice!
- 2 quarts (8 cups) water
- 3 Lipton tea bags (orange pekoe and pekoe cut black tea blend)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar or one 16 ounce bottle light corn syrup
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon strawberry extract
Boil the water in a large saucepan. When the water comes to a rapid boil, turn off the heat, put the tea bags into the water, and cover. After the tea has brewed about 1 hour, pour the sugar or sweetener into a 2-quart pitcher, then add the tea. The tea should still be warm, so the sugar or sweetener will dissolve easily. Add the flavoring ingredients (plus additional water if needed to bring the tea to the 2-quart line). Chill.
Yield: 2 quarts
