We make iced tea for our employees and these family sized tea bags make it so easy. For each gallon of tea we use 3 family sized tea bags. We usually make three gallons at a time so we put 9 family size tea bags into the carafe (not the brew basket) of our coffee maker and then add water to the coffee maker as if making coffee. The hot water fills the carafe with the tea bags in it. We let the tea steep in the carafe for 10 - 12 minutes to create a tea concentrate. While the tea is steeping, we put fresh cold water (5-6 coffee pots or about 2 1\/2 gallons) into our clean dispenser. Once the tea is finished steeping, we pour the concentrate and bags into the dispenser and give the bags a quick swish to release as much tea as possible, then squeeze the bags out and throw them away. We keep our dispenser in the refrigerator. The tea stays fresh 3 - 4 days if refrigerated but it rarely lasts that long. :) If your group wants sweetened tea, it takes 1 1\/2 - 2 cups of sugar per gallon of tea to make classic Southern iced tea. (We just let people sweeten their tea in their glass.)
It was recently that I started drinking green tea. Though I may not be a good reviewer of the quality of the green tea as such, it was the refreshing aroma of lemon that invaded me from the very first cup. I make my tea rather light; say 1 sachet for about 2-3 cups, still the aroma of lemon and the taste of a green tea is good.\nI am also someone who is not particular about caffene, but I never drink decaf either!
