tea lemonade

Homemade Black Tea Lemonade
4 large black tea bags (or 6ish regular sized tea bags)
6 cups of water
1 cup sugar (i use agave nectar)
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice (from 4-6 lemons)

Bring 6 cups of water to boil, remove from heat, add tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes.
While the tea steeps, make your simple syrup: heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Meanwhile, juice your lemons.

Combine the lemon juice, simple syrup, and steeped tea in a pitcher. Stir! Refrigerate for about an hour.
If it’s too strong for you, just add some cold water!
Serve over ice, with stripey straws, if at all possible. :)
