  • 4 tea bags, cut open and loose tea leaves poured out
  • 4 cups filtered room temperature water


  • Combine loose tea leaves and water in a French press carafe, bottle, or bowl big enough to hold all the liquid.
  • Cover and store on the counter, or in the fridge, for 8-12 hours. If using a French press carafe, leave the plunger up. The longer you steep the tea, the stronger it will be.
  • Pour the tea through a few layers of cheesecloth into a bottle. If using a French press carafe, push the plunger down before pouring the tea into the bottle.
  • Store tea covered in the fridge for about a week. Serve over ice and with a lime wedge or lemon slices.
