When I was a kid, my mother would make iced tea that was called "Sun Tea". She put 2 Lipton tea bags in a 1 gal. glass milk bottle full of cold water, put a cap on it and set it on the steps outside in the hot summer sun. At the end of the day she would bring in the bottle, remove the tea bags and place the tea in the refrigerator. This process made very clear (never cloudy) very good tasting iced tea. After fully chilled she would add some sugar and some lemon juice and there was a gallon of tea ready to consume. If I were to do this same thing with loose green tea, I'm trying to figure out how much tea I would add to the water. One gallon would be 16 cups so would I add 16 tsp. of tea or would that be too much, or too little. any suggestions. I'm trying not to waste too much tea by experimenting. Maybe someone out there might know how much tea I should use. Help!
