From Jay Nelson:
I've lived on iced tea forever. We go through about a gallon a day.
The easiest way we've found to make tea is:
7 tea bags with any staples removed 1 quart jar of water
Fill the jar with water and tea bags. Microwave for 3 1/2 minutes or
until it's just ready to boil. Let stand for a few minutes. Pour
into a gallon pitcher, add water to make 1 gallon, and refrigerate.
