MrsRain, iced green tea is wonderful! I make mine in one gallon pitchers, about 7-9 tea bags per gallon. By making it like sun tea (i.e., allowing the tea bags to sit in the water for 6-8 hours, usually on the count top or in the fridge), I find the flavor to be mellow and not too tannic or bitter. I sweeten with stevia, and during the growing season, I add a couple crushed handfuls of fresh mint. Sometimes add either lemon or lime juice, too. Good stuff, no?
