TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT ICED TEA
Easy as it sounds, a good glass of iced tea is not just about placing a few cubes of ice into a pitcher of hot tea and letting it sit before serving it. The secret to making a great-tasting iced tea beverage is by using simmering water and chilling it with large ice cubes after. Simmering water is just below boiling water temperature. Anything above that temperature will spoil the tea leaves and thus, lose the rich flavour.
