Back again, with my tea recipe:
The equivalent of 4 tea bags in a pint canning jar 1/2 filled with water. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes (2 in my old microwave). Let it sit for 4 min to 12 hours. The staples on the tea bags are not large enough to spark.
Pour that tea concentrate into a 1/2 gallon container, add water to fill.
I use 2 black tea bags and 2 Constant Comment bags. It makes me happy. If I don't have Constant Comment, I add 1/2 lemon juiced.
No counter space, no boiling that I have to supervise, and it's ready when I am.
I hate sweet tea, but the sugar can be added at step 3.
