We love this recipe because it's got strong tea flavor without being bitter, and it's sweet but not cloying.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place tea bags and baking soda in a large heatproof glass pitcher.

Step 2

Bring water just to a rolling boil in a saucepan or kettle, and immediately pour over tea bags, making sure bags are submerged. Cover and steep 7 minutes. Remove tea bags without squeezing; discard tea bags.

Step 3

Add ice, and stir until ice melts. Stir in Simple Syrup, and serve over ice.

Chef's Notes
