“Y’all think I’m about to make iced tea just to put it in iced tea because fuck yeah that’s what I’m about to do.”
On Monday, 23-year-old Cameo Kinney from Portland, Oregon, decided to share her sacred iced tea hack online with everyone. She told BuzzFeed News it "will save lives this summer." We're listening.
Kinney is a big proponent of iced tea, and making the perfect iced tea–drinking experience.
To prevent ice cubes from diluting her tea, Kinney pours her tea into an ice cube tray to form tea cubes. (I realize this is not a novel hack, but there is a unique madness to her method.)
"I have an electric tea kettle that I use to make the ice," she said. "I boil my water in there and put around 7 to 10 tea bags in a jar along with around half a cup of sugar. I also use about 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey in the ice.
"Takes around an hour for the ice to freeze. It's honestly a super simple and quick hack."
