Hi candy~,buy tea bags,or loose tea, if you use loose tea you will have to get a tea caddy,or strainer.
bring 3 cups of water water to a boil,add tea bags or loose tea,take off heat,cover and let steep for about five minutes,strain into pitcher, add however much sugar you like, and then add water to finish filling pitcher or to whatever strength you like your tea,stir put ice in a glass ,pour your tea ,and enjoy :)

Thanks I don't add sugar
i use tea bags
Will have to make some ice cubes.
So warm here I need a thirst quencher and cool down.
I only drink very weak tea.

I am trying to cut down on sugar because the pancreas can't deal with it like when we were young.
I am due to have a Diabetes test because I am on the border line.

I am sure they Put sugar IN OUR MILK< BUT I might be wrong.

just ice and tea, no milk in ice tea. use about 4 tea bags to each gallon of water,..you also can make sun tea. put tea bags in a gallon glass jar with water in it. sit in sun for at least four hours.

Let me get this straight. You're 72 years old and from ENGLAND who's people are notorious for drinking tea, and you never learned how to make it?

Your a dunderhead
We do not make iced tea because our weather is not usually that hot.

I have never heard of sun tea.

I would not soak tea bags too long because the caffeine would come out.

I remember my Aunt kept using the same tea leaves..Ugh!

On the continent like Austria people drink black tea in glasses.
I can't stomach it.

The insides of peoples teapots in England use to be black. Ugh!

I have a stainless steel teapot.

My Mother made a good rice pudding in an enamel pie dish.
But enamel chips.

I drink a lot of powdered Cappercinno... Can't stomach coffee now. I don't mind drinking it cold from the fridge.

Most of us use a teabag in a cup.

I like porcelain tea and coffee cups.

I use my coffee pot, put the teabags (8) in the bottom fill the water well with water and turn on the machine , once it is finished dripping turn it off and let the teabags soak untill the water has cooled, pour into a gallon pitcher, we don't do sweet tea except nutrasweet. Sun tea is on takes several hours and there is a risk of bacteria forming in the jar. Tyler I am with you about ice, I love crushed ice, I have an icemaker that makes both cube or crushed. My favorite fast food ice is Sonic, they sell it by the bags at home and it lasts forever in the cup.

Would not touch those tins with a barge pole.

People do have a fried breakfast with Baked Beans. (Protein)

They may have pork sausages in those tins.
Don't eat sausages.

Blackpool is a famous seaside town.

I have never been

Resort town in England which is famous for its tower that was built in 1895 and which resembles the Eiffel Tower

Well, it should be noted that its on your plate you havent eaten it. I could have my picture taken too with a bucket of Colonel Sanders chicken that doesn't mean I ate it.

But yes you look fine Candy, glad your doing alright.

That was Brian's Dinner. Mine was in the kitchen ready to be brought out.
A friend and I went through a stage of taking photo's of our dinners we made. Just a bit of fun. Brian thought it funny.
