This is a simple recipe, yes. However, I've had some British/Irish/Scottish friends in the past who've taught me what real tea tastes like, and I've found that I like this flavor to be present in both hot and cold forms of the beverage. Not to criticize, but many Americans don't understand the specifics of how to brew tea to its full potential and flavor. Some overbrew it, some underbrew it. I will be covering brewing both black and green teas for making sweet iced tea, in separate recipes.
