Hubby drinks green tea by the gallon, so I came up with this as a cheaper alternative to buying the bottles of Lipton’s.

We use the Bigelow 100% Organic Green Tea bags from Sam’s (box of 175 bags is less than $7).

For one gallon of tea:

Boil 6 tea bags in a small saucepan (you don’t have to use a full gallon for this – just enough to fill the pan about 3/4 full). Turn the heat OFF after it comes to a rolling boil. Allow to steep for 10 – 15 minutes.

Strain tea into a gallon pitcher. Add 1/4 cup sugar (or to your taste) along with 2-4 tablespoons lemon juice (also more or less to your taste). Fill the pitcher with water, stir well. Refrigerate and serve.

Enjoy! 🙂
