How to prepare iced tea with loose tea leaves

Pour hot water over double the amount you would usually use for hot tea. After the tea has steeped for about 2 minutes put ice into the container until it is full. Most of the ice will melt almost immediately and dilute the tea to its ideal level. After approximately 3 minutes you can pour over ice and serve.

Some customers like to pour it over a tea net to trap all of the loose leaves. Some don't. It is delicious both ways. If the container you use doesn't have a lid that traps most of the leaves then you might want to use a net.
