I’m a tea gal through and through. Occasionally I’ll drink coffee, but tea is where this mama gets her morning fuel. My preferred way to enjoy tea? Iced. Iced tea all day long, please. While I typically prefer it simple and black, I also enjoy the light flavors from Bigelow’s varieties. My current favorite is Lemon Lift and it’s in my fridge on the regular. Brewing tea from tea bags is super simple and always results in smooth and perfect iced tea when I use Bigelow.

Bigelow tea offers a variety of flavors that I love to rotate throughout the summer like Perfect Peach and Vanilla Chai. Tea is notoriously easy to make, but Bigelow adds to the experience with their high quality flavors and fresh ingredients. Bigelow varieties are available at my local Walmart and online at Walmart.com. To learn more about my favorite tea, hover over the image below to see how you can purchase it for yourself!

 

To brew tea from tea bags it needs to be steeped the same way I would normally make a cup of hot tea. I’m just doing it on a bigger scale, which means using more tea bags. For roughly a gallon of iced tea, I’m using eight bags of Lemon Lift tea.

I fill up my pitcher halfway with roughly half a gallon of boiling water.

And I set my tea bags inside to steep.

I allow the tea to steep for about five minutes and then I remove the bags.

I fill up my pitcher the rest of the way with ice and then place it inside the fridge to finish cooling.

When I’m ready to enjoy a summer afternoon on my front porch with a cold glass of Lemon Lift, I fill a glass with some ice and a couple slices of lemon. Then I fill it with the chilled tea in the fridge. The light lemon flavor is refreshing and instantly boosts my mood.
