Secret Ingredient Iced Tea

Posted: Updated:

Ever wonder why the iced tea at a restaurant always seems to taste crisper and more flavorful than your version at home? Well, there is a simple secret to how that happens and we're sharing it in our recipe for Secret Ingredient Iced Tea.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 25 min

Ingredients
  • 10 cups water, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda (See Note)
  • 7 tea bags
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, bring 5 cups water to a boil over high heat. Stir in baking soda and tea bags; remove from heat, cover, and let steep 15 minutes.
     
  2. Remove and discard tea bags. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add remaining water and the lemon slices. Pour into 1/2-gallon container and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours, or until chilled.
     
  3. Serve over ice in tall glasses and garnish with mint, if desired.
Notes
  • Using baking soda in this recipe is no mistake. It removes any bitterness from the tea, leaving us with a smooth and flavorful drink.
