Worked great, Member betisink

Thought this was a great idea & decided to try it. It worked like a charm. Since our area is in the midst of a heat wave, I didn't have to heat ANYTHING. I took a 1/2 gallon jar, added about 8 teabags. I have 1 little tip - I put the strings from the teabags outside of the jar & screwed the lid on over them. When I was ready to remove them, I just removed the lid (the strings stayed put) & picked up the strings to pull out the teabags. Voila, cold tea.
