Ice Tea

8 cups strong tea
(8 cups boiling water +16 teabags, left to steep for 5 minutes)
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (approx 2 large lemons)
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar (or more to taste)
Grated peel from lemons

Pour steeped tea into a pitcher. Add the sugar. Add the lemon
juice. Stir, taste for adjust for sweetness.

Note: Before you add the lemon juice (fresh squeezed is mandatory),
the tea should taste quite bitter, undrinkable alone. Once you add
the lemon juice it turns colour, (the lemon juice seems to bleach
it) and then add sugar until you're happy with the taste.


Variation:

My technique is to put the grated rind in a metal sieve (one with
really tiny holes), place the sieve on top of a large measuring cup or
pitcher that holds 8.5 cups of liquid, and pour the hot, strong tea
mixed with the lemon juice and sugar through it, and repeat several
times.
