Iced Tea Enthusiasts?
 
Warning: Banter follows. My girlfriend has made me an iced tea lover. I drank it all the time growing up in the south and I took it for granted; just recently have begun appreciating it more. Luzianne is the brand that I like the best so far for making iced tea. Recently, when I couldn't find any, I bought some Lipton and it was okay. Then I bought some cheap store brand, Sun Leaf, and it tastes good. But, when you chill it in the refrigerator it turns cloudy. Any recommendations for iced tea brands?

I'm pretty simple, I only make my own tea in summer otherwise it is usually Arizona Tea. I have been really impressed with Gold Peak Tea, very tasty and goes good with the pipe.

Home brew would be Lipton.
Bottled would be Lipton Pure Leaf unsweet or Gold Peak unsweet.
Fast food would be McD unsweeted iced tea

We get a McD iced tea whenever we stop there; it's a bargain at 99 cents for the urn size. Do you buy the cold-brew Lipton or regular tea bags?

I grew up drinking nothing but this^^^^

My wife doesn't drink tea so I generally make small batches. Something I've done that is an acquired taste is making a quart using Bigelow Constant Comment. :nod:

That sounds like it'd be good. I've tried iced green tea and it was different. Tried making the iced flavored herbal teas, but it just takes like juice or cool-aid.

Just the regular tea bags. If there is a special cold brew, I have not seen it here in NY. Unless you are talking instant tea, I haven't used it in a number of years. I'd rather take the time here to let it sit and chill out... :lol:

Cold-brew is a special kind of Lipton tea bags that will work in cold water. I like to prepare tea the traditional way by boiling the water and letting the tea steep for 5-10 minutes or more. We went to Fresh Market today and I bought four new teas that I am going to try for iced tea. Got PG tips from England, Barry's Tea from Ireland, Yorkshire Gold from Australia and Bigelow Earl Grey from USA.
