Notes

When you add 3 liters of water - let the tap run until it is really cold. It will help cool off the tea more quickly in the fridge.
Try your own tea blend, there are plenty that will make great iced tea. Keep in mind that the tea needs to have a good hearty flavor.  My partner likes light teas like Green tea, without sugar witch can take a bit of getting used to but it can be drunk all day long.
Remember this is how I like it, you are free to adjust the amount of lemon or sugar to your taste.
