Ingredients

  • 5¼ c. water, divided

  • 4 Tazo® Passion® tea bags

  • ¼ c. sugar

  • 4” piece lemongrass, finely chopped

  • 2 small cinnamon sticks

  • ½ c. fresh lemon juice

  • Ice, to serve

  • Garnish: (optional)
  • Fresh lemon slices

  • Sprigs of fresh mint

Directions

  • Bring four cups water to a rapid bowl in a teapot or saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea bags to steep for several minutes before discarding. 
  • To prepare the infused simple syrup, combine a quarter cup water, sugar, lemongrass, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer to separate the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and set the remaining simple syrup aside to cool. 
  • Combine the brewed tea, lemon juice, and remaining cup of water in a large pitcher. Add infused simple syrup, to taste, and stir to combine. 
  • To serve, fill four chilled glasses with ice before adding the sweetened iced tea mixture. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
