I don't brew in my coffee pot.
I boil water in a pot, maybe 3 cups.
When it comes to a boil, I remove it from the heat and place in 3 family sized "Luzianne" brand teabags.
I set a timer and steep it for 3 minutes. After which I remove teabags, making sure not to squeeze them.
Pour liquid into a pitcher, add 1/2 cup of Splenda baking(sugar substitute)
Stir until sugar mix is melted. Add a lot of ice, then enough water to make a gallon. (I add a lot of ice, so I can go ahead and put it in the fridge or so we can go ahead and drink it immediately. Once ice has melted you will want to stir it once.
I think "Luzianne" has a much better flavor than "Lipton".
When I have get-togethers people are always bragging on the flavor and how my tea is never bitter. It tastes good for three or more days.
You may have had a lot of unfair things happen, but when you look back over your life, remember something good that has happened for you. Replay the good memories. Joel Osteen
