How to Make Tea Concentrate
Reduce the water in this recipe to only 4 cups, but use the same number of tea bags.
When you're ready to enjoy your iced tea, fill your glass 50-60% full and add water or ice to top off the glass.
The baking soda is optional but a favorite trick for creating a smooth and mellow drink with a very deep tea flavor.If you're using individual tea bags, you'd use 7-8 depending on how strong you like your tea.If you'd like to double the recipe, the "cook" time remains the same.
