sketch of Bob above the Iced Tea Like McDonald's recipe.

We had a neighbor call in and say she wanted to be able to make iced tea like McDonald's at home. It took a couple of days...but Mickey called this iced tea recipe in to us. We had never heard of orange pekoe and pekoe cut black tea but John Pardington at the Holiday Market in Canton assured us that they carry it.

ICED TEA LIKE McDonald’s (Mickey’s)

3 family sized tea bags of orange pekoe and pekoe cut black tea
1 3/4 c. sugar
8 c. boiling water

Add sugar to boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add tea bags and steep for 5-10 minutes. If you can’t find the family sized tea bags, use 8 regular sized bags. Refrigerate the ice tea before serving over ice.

Iced Tea Like McDonald's recipe is published in our August, 2009 Menu Minder, Issue #310.
