The only thing better than cold brew (or better yet, cold brew cocktails) in the summer is a glass of iced tea. And while you can buy bottled iced tea at the supermarket, there's nothing quite like a refreshing pitcher of iced tea. Perhaps it's the taste, or maybe it's the childhood memories of mom's sun tea. But homemade iced tea is just better.
Iced tea is easy to make at home, too, no matter which recipe you use. But the secret to a good iced tea recipe is always loose-leaf tea. Read on to try our homemade, unsweetened iced tea recipe.
