    Make a cup of tea then put it in the freezer. Or make the tea then put an ice cube in it. How else??

    Honestly just try a load of the recipes you found on the web and find the one you like most.

    1. Take 3 regular tea bags
    2. Put them in 2 mugs of cold water
    3. Bring this mixture to the boil on the hob (then immediately take it off the boil)
    4. Then put 1-2 (taste dependent) mugs of sugar into the mixture after decanting it into a jug
    5. Add 2 cups of ice to the tea
    6. Dissolve the sugar and let about half of the ice dissolve.

    I still haven't found a completely satisfactory recipe, but this is as good as I've got

    1. Mug of sugar
    2. Five strings of mint
    3. Three tea bags (regular)
    4. Three lemons
    5. 4 Liters of water

    a. take the water to a good 50*C before adding sugar
    b. after it boils, add the mint, tea, wash the lemons cut them and put them with the rest of the water (don't squeeze the juice though, just put them there to give the tea a bitter taste). Remove lemon/mint/tea bags after about half an hour.
    c. let it sit until it cools
    d. pour it in a pitcher and put in the fridge

    Its just the recipe I use - iprov by mom a few years back (I think...).

    Edit: ice tea always mixes well with a shot of rum.

    Hey, you can just buy iced tea in powdered form. Lipton does them. It tastes really refreshing. Squeeze in lemon/lime and add cubes of ice. Sorted!

    yes, why not buy the bigger carton:yes: works out cheaper than 1quid for 500ml

    and u can just estimate it cost 50p, did u take the cost of gas? or electricity to boil up the 5liters of water??

    time = money :rolleyes:
