4 tea bags: regular, decaffeinated, or herbal
4 cups water
Bring water to a rolling boil. Pour water over tea bags in a teapot, pitcher, or other one-quart container. Let steep five to seven minutes. Remove tea bags. Chill.
Instead of adding sugar or artificial sweetener, try adding fruit juice for a new flavor. Mixing 1 cup of tea with 1/2 cup orange juice adds about 56 calories, 1 g protein, less than 1 g fat, 13 g carbohydrates, less than 1 g fiber, and 1 mg sodium.
