EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you can’t find tea bags labeled “iced tea” at your grocery store, use any type of black tea bag. If family-size tea bags are available, substitute 2 family-size bags for the 6 regular-size bags.

If you like your tea super-sweet, use 1 1/2 cups of sugar. If you’re preference isn’t as sweet, only add 1 cup.
