Refreshing Iced Tea

Healthy Fact of the Day

Unsweetened iced tea is a fantastic low-calorie alternative to sugary drinks. It's also rich in antioxidants, which help protect your body from harmful free radicals and may reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases.



  • 6 tea bags (black, green, or herbal)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (optional)
  • 4 cups cold water
  • Lemon slices or fresh mint leaves for garnish



  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil.

  2. Remove the water from heat and add the tea bags. Steep for 5 minutes (or according to the tea package instructions).

  3. Remove the tea bags and discard them. If using sugar, stir it into the hot tea until completely dissolved.

  4. Pour the hot tea into a large pitcher and add 4 cups of cold water. Stir well to combine.

  5. Refrigerate the tea for at least 2 hours, or until it’s completely chilled.

  6. When ready to serve, pour the iced tea into glasses filled with ice.

  7. Garnish with lemon slices or fresh mint leaves for added flavor and aroma.

When the summer heat strikes, grab a glass of this delightful iced tea, find a cozy spot in the shade, and let your worries melt away like ice cubes on a sizzling sidewalk!
