- Make Hot Tea: Add tea bags to a pitcher with 2-quart capacity (8 cups), safe for hot water and rapid temperature changes (Note 2). Bring 4 cups water to a simmer. Pour hot water into the pitcher over tea bags. Steep tea for 5 minutes or to desired strength, then remove and discard tea bags.
- Add Other Ingredients: Stir in sweetener until fully dissolved in the hot water. Cut lemons in half and squeeze them until you have 1/4 cup of juice (Note 3), discarding any seeds. Any unused lemon halves can be cut into slices or wedges to be used as garnish. Add lemon juice and ice cubes.
- Shake & Serve: Securely close the pitcher with the lid. Shake a few times or until mixed. Add any lemon slices or wedges as garnish. Serve iced tea (Note 4).
