In this post I’ll show you how easy it is to make your own homemade iced tea. I’ll also talk about tips and tricks to make it easy and taste amazing!

Here’s the simple steps to making homemade Raspberry Mint Iced Tea:

How do you make iced tea?

First, you will steep tea by adding boiling water to tea bags. Let the tea and water come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes. This will create a tea concentrate.

Once the concentrate is cooled, pour into a large pitcher and top with additional water.

What is the ratio of water to tea bags for making iced tea?

The ratio of water to tea bags is 1:2. One cup of boiling water to two tea bags. Once the tea has cooled you will then add another cup of water. 

For example 4 cups of boiling water to 8 tea bags. Once concentrate has been made and cooled, you will add another 4 cups of water.

How do you flavor iced tea?

Once the tea concentrate has been made, add fresh raspberries and mint to your pitcher and then pour into the tea. Letting this chill together will infuse the berries and mint flavors.

How much sugar should I add to make sweet tea?

If you prefer a “sweet tea”, simply add the sweetener of your choice.  For 8 cups of iced tea, I would add about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar – adapt to your taste preference for a sweeter, or less-sweet tea.

You can also create a sugar-free sweet tea by using a granular monk fruit sweetener, like Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener.
