How to Make Iced Tea

There's nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a glass of super cold iced tea. But most bottled iced teas are chocked full of refined sugar or yukky fake sugars.

What if you could make your own AND it actually tasted good? Is this possible? Of course! And it's super easy to make iced tea too! Read on to learn how to make refreshing sugar-free Iced Tea.


Iced tea is ridiculously easy to make.

All you need is some tea bags, a kettle, a jar, and your refrigerator.

Glass jug

Step 1: Choose Your Tea

Just about any tea can be made into iced tea.

Black and Green Teas:

All black and green teas have been proven to help lower blood sugar! Awesome! So if you're ok with a little caffeine, choose your favorite black or green tea and start brewing!

Herbal Teas:

If caffeinated teas are not your thing, most herbal teas makes a great iced tea too!

Mints, Hibiscus, Dandelion, Lemongrass, Raspberry leaves, Ginger, Lavender or any herbal tea you like hot will work great as an iced tea.

Tea in box

HEALTH TIP: Designer teas in NYLON bags leave tiny plastic hormone-disrupting micro-particles in your tea. Yuk! Choose tea in PAPER teabags or use loose tea.

Step 2: Boil Your Water

Each teabag will make 2 cups of iced tea. So boil 2 cups of water for each teabag.

Step 3: Steep Your Tea

Place your teabag(s) in a glass jar or pitcher with your freshly boiled water. Cover and let cool for at least 4 hours.

NEVER steep your iced tea in a plastic jug unless you like drinking diabetes-causing Hormone Disruptors. Gross!!!!

Always use a glass pitcher or glass jar. 

Step 4: Chill Your Tea

Put your cooled tea in the fridge. Overnight works best. You can leave the teabags in your glass container. Your tea will stay fresh for 3 to 5 days.

Step 5: Sweeten Your Tea (Optional)

Most iced tea does not need to be sweetened. And it will be WAY more refreshing WITHOUT sugar.

But if must have some sweetener use citrus, apple slices or frozen berries to sweeten up your tea when you serve it.

Step 6: Garnish Your Tea

When it's time to serve your tea, get creative!

Fruit slices, frozen berries, frozen grapes, mint leaves or citrus slices all make your iced tea look all fancy and you'll feel like you're at an expensive restaurant soaking up the sun on the patio. Enjoy!
