I love iced tea, but I'm somewhat overwhelmed by the many recipes online that I've found to make iced tea. I never know which one to pick, or which ones are any good. Currently I'm growing a herb garden, so I have some nice herbs I could add to my iced tea (strawberry mint, orange mint, spearmint, among other things) and I'm a bit tea obsessed so I have a wide variety of tea in my tea cupboard (I mean, come on, I've got a whole cupboard devoted to my tea!)
So ladies, what are some of your favourite recipes for making iced tea or sweet tea?

If you live near the Edmonton area, there is a local bitters business that sells Earl Grey bitters at markets which are great to add to iced tea (lots of flavour in a few drops) and really add to anything.
Regardless of which recipe I use, I tend to like less intense tea flavors, and only mildly sweetened, so that I can drink more with a subtler taste. My favorite thing to do is simply steep any herbal tea bag I feel in the mood for, add however many slices of lemon will comfortably sit on the top of the container, and toss some mint leaves in (perhaps crush them first for flavor). If you want it to be sweet, use a simple syrup for ease of blending, but only use a bit. And if you want to get exciting, there is a "sweet carolina tea vodka" that is meant for both hot and cold teas ;)

I love Iced Tea and make a couple of pots of tea with different types of tea bags for flavour.
Once done and steeped, I pour the tea into a container and keep it in the fridge for when I need it

I always keep a jug of homemade iced tea in the fridge. All I do is make a pot of one bag of regular tea and one bag of flavoured tea like Raspberry Thriller. Let it steep and pour it in a jug to store in the fridge for whenever I need a glass
