I just use my keurig. You can get K-cups for Snapple peach tea and it's literally the greatest thing ever.

1. Fill the pitcher with water
2. Lift the basket and pour the water into the brewer (that colored lid opens and the basket is under there)
3. Put tea bag in basket and return to the brewer, close lid
4. Put ice in the pitcher (and sugar if desired)
5. Put the pitcher next to the brewer.
6. Push button
7. Wait.

My wife buys some sort of stuff called 'sleepy time tea' for her kuerig and it's pretty nice with some honey. Really soothing and whatever.

McDonald's has a 'diet sweet tea' that uses stevia, it's tasty.

Brewed my own kombucha, not awful but I don't think it has the health benefits they say it does plus it tastes awful if you don't drink the whole batch within a month

Stevia is less sweet than sugar, but still sweet enough.

Worst thing ever is pouring a glass of milk and taking a drink only to discover that it has soured. But this is the tea thread, not the gross old milk thread.

OK, this can be just a tea thread now (not limited to Iced).

I love a good Chai Tea Latte.

Here's a Mr. Coffee brand Iced Tea Maker hack for you....

Instead of adding ice, just brew a double batch... (Brew as normal, less ice then refill the reservoir and brew again using the same tea bag(s) again)...this leads to a full pitcher of strong tea. You can then just add ice/water to your cup to your liking. (This works especially well if you have a water dispenser on the fridge because almost no extra work to add water to your cup but the pitcher lasts twice as long.)

I use English Breakfast Tea k-cups in a keurig over ice and it makes good (to me) iced tea.
