I’ve been drinking a bunch of different types of iced tea lately. I misplaced my stevia for a while so I started using Hermesetas (saccharine). I find that 1/4 tsp stevia or 15 Hermesetas tablets sweeten 2 L of tea well.
For 2 L of tea, I use sweetener, 2 tsp. citric acid, and one of these:
- 2 Tbsp green tea
- 4 Tbsp hibiscus + 1 Tbsp black tea (this makes brilliantly red tea)
- 3 apple spice tea bags + 1 tsp dried ginger, 1″ fresh ginger, or 1 ginger tea bag
- 2 Tbsp rooibos
- 3 Tbsp lemongrass mate
- 2 Tbsp dried mint leaves
I make the tea in 2 L wide-mouth mason jars.
