yeah, I drink iced tea every morning -- used to fumble around with boiling water and ice; then upgraded to an iced tea maching. Now I just put a tea bag in a gatorade bottle full of warm water and it's tea in about 30 minutes. Chill in the fridge and ready to go in the morning.

3 regular size tea bags (Lipton, because I can't find Luzianne at my local store), 1 peppermint tea bag. Steep in a quart of water off the boil for 5 minutes. Mix steeped tea, 1/2 cup of sugar in 1/2 gallon pitcher. Top off with cold water, ice.
