Iced tea sure hits the spot on a hot day. Here's a great way to make it that won't heat up the kitchen or boat! Cold-brewed tea also puts a lot less load on the refrigerator!

Fill half gallon bottle with water, leaving at least an inch and a half of air space at the top.
Put tea bags in water, with tags hanging outside of top.
Put lid on and screw on tight.
Place in refrigerator at least 10 hours or overnight until tea is chilled and brewed. Tea bags can be removed.
LCHF: Caffeine will raise some diabetic's blood sugar (it does mine!), in which case use decaffeinated tea bags. Note: I like my tea fairly strong; use fewer tea bags if you like yours weaker.Variations: instead of just using "regular" (black) tea, try a mix of different teas. I usually use half black tea, and add whatever others I find: green tea, Constant Comment, lemongrass, and jamaica (hibiscus) are all great by themselves or mixed together.
