Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Iced tea

by Sunday, May 21, 2017
Makes 1 gallon

  • 10 tea bags (remove tags and tie stings together for easy removal)
  • 8 cups water
  • (1 cup of sugar for sweet, or less to taste)
  1. Place all ingredients in pressure cooker pot.
  2. Lock the lid lid and set valve to sealing.
  3. Press the manual button, set to high pressure for 4 minutes.
  4. When done, quick release pressure with a set of kitchen tongs.
  5. Stir well if you added sugar.
  6. Remove tea bags with tongs.
  7. Place 8 more cups of cold water/ice in a 1 gallon pitcher and then add brewed tea.
I made mine with my daily-drinker, Yorkshire Gold tea, which has no strings. I just used a slotted spoon to remove them, pressing another spoon on them to press out any retained water in the bag itself. I also love making tea with different flavored teas, like using Earl Grey, or an herbed tea, etc I saw one recipe call for putting some peeled slices of two apples in before pressure cookin', which would be a great natural sweetener. I could see that with a little cinnamon and lemon for a unique iced tea experience, or substitute different natural fruits such as mango or peaches!
