Tea Concentrate For A Large Group

25 servings = 1 qtr. water/ 1/2 cup loose tea or 25 bags

50 servings = 2 qtr. water/ 1 cup loose tea or 50 bags

100 servings = 1 gal water/ 2 cups loose tea or 100 bags

Bring water to a boil in a large pot and then remove from heat. Add the tea bags or the tea socks and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea.  Let the tea cool and pour into pitchers and refrigerate.
This concentrate can be made up to 3 days in advance. Be sure to make it and test it before serving to a large gathering.
You can use the concentrate in the individual pots or in large water urns which have NOT been used for coffee.
Using a 45 cup urn = 90 Tbsp. or 5 1/2 cups of concentrate. Fill urn with water and heat, then add concentrate. If making ice tea, pour in cold water and concentrate in Urn, add some ice. When serving, pour over ice in cups.

1 lb. of tea should serve at least 200 people or more. The fresher the tea the better!
