I absolutely love iced tea. Love it. The problem is that it's a pain in the ass to keep making; it feels like I'm always trying to brew a new batch, usually a couple times a day.
So, while I was at the store picking up some odds and ends today, I picked up a 3-gallon dispenser, designed for coffee and whatnot. I figured I could use this to make a huge batch of tea, kind of like sun tea, without constantly having to make more.
Here's the question I have, though: how long will tea keep at room temperature? I like my tea and all, and I can certainly tell the cheap stuff from the good stuff, but I'm not a connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination. So if the taste is a bit degraded, meh, life goes on. It's usually kind of watered down by the time I finish drinking it (from the ice). I just don't want to be drinking something that's spoiled.
I mean, if I can really just fill this thing up with water, throw a tea ball in there, and then let it sit for a while, and then pour it over ice when I want it, that'd be ideal.
