#Place 4 lychee tea bags or 1 tablespoon (8 g) of loose tea into a pitcher. Get out a pitcher that holds at least of liquid and put the tea bags into it. If you'd rather use loose leaf tea, put the tea directly into the pitcher.<ref>https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2016/06/cold-brewed-iced-tea-recipe.html</ref>
  +
#*If you don't have a large pitcher, infuse the tea in a large measuring jug instead.
  +
#Pour of cold water into the pitcher. Use cold water instead of boiling water to prevent the tea from developing a bitter taste as it brews. If you don't like the flavor of your tap water, use bottled water.<ref>https://ift.tt/2Qecp4M>
  +
#*You can tie the tea bag strings to the handle of the pitcher if you don't want them soaking with the tea.
  +
#Cover the pitcher and refrigerate the tea for 4 to 5 hours. Put plastic wrap over the top of the pitcher to seal it and place it in the fridge. Chill the tea so the water infuses with the flavor of the tea. If you used tea bags, remove the pitcher after 4 hours. If you used loose leaf tea, let it infuse for a total of 5 hours.<ref>https://youtu.be/eObdUEnBRpw?t=52</ref>
  +
#*The tea will become stronger and more flavorful the longer it infuses.
  +
#Remove the tea bags or pour the loose-leaf tea through a strainer. Taste the tea to decide if it's as strong as you like. If it is, take the tea bags out of the pitcher. If you infused loose leaf tea, set a fine-mesh strainer over another clean pitcher and slowly pour the tea through it.<ref>https://ift.tt/2Qecp4M>
  +
#*Discard the used tea bags or tea leaves.
  +
#*Cover the pitcher and refrigerate the lychee tea for up to 4 days.
  +
#Pour the cold lychee tea into a serving glass with ice and garnish it with mint. When you're ready to serve the tea, fill a tall glass with ice. Slowly pour the chilled tea into the glass and top it with a sprig of mint.<ref>https://youtu.be/eObdUEnBRpw?t=102</ref>
  +
#*If you prefer to sweeten your lychee tea, stir in your choice of sugar or honey. Keep in mind that some lychee teas are also sweetened so taste the tea first.
