6 cups cold water
1/3 cup loose tea

6 lemon slices
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
For Tea: Combine water and tea; let stand, covered, overnight.

Iced tea is a wonderful summer drink, and easy if you simply steep the tea in cold water overnight. Please don't refrigerate, as chilling makes tea cloudy.
