Great for iced tea, too!

This makes fantastic iced tea as well. I've been trying to find an iced tea that comes out clear without much hassle. Lipton, Luzianne, Tetley - all these teas are a bit finicky when trying to brew just right. On occasion if you overbrew you get a cloudy, mucky mess of a tea. And I like my iced tea to be clear as highly polished amber. This one is so hard to mess up. I use four bags in a pyrex measuring cup. I can walk away from it while it's steeping. Somewhere after 6 minutes or so I check on it. Then I pour it over ice. I've tried to take pictures of how it looks, but it's frosting the pitcher so it's hard to tell how nice it looks. I know people might be like, who cares how it looks? But often cloudy tea has a horrible taste to it. Very bitter.

This also tastes great. It has a nice sharp flavor to it without being too much. I found I had to get used to it, the first couple of glasses I was expecting the more mellow taste of more basic iced teas. Once I did get used to the change, I will not go back. This is my new iced tea!
