I've always made iced tea the same way...I boil a saucepan full of water, and once it starts boiling I turn it off, remove the pan from the heat, and then drop in 5 or 6 tea bags. When it's cold, I mix with water in a pitcher and I have tea.
The last two times I've done this the tea in the pan is cloudy, and then the pitcher of tea is cloudy! It also tastes a bit odd, can't put my finger on the odd factor. The tea bags are the same, I used filtered water from my faucet as usual! Do any of you experts have any thoughts? ?
