Best tea for ICE tea

Soup | Jun 7, 200806:31 AM     64

Here is the DC area the summer heat and humidity has started early this year. Family is shouting for good ice tea. The wife has been buying Arizona and Lipton green tea (the premade stuff).

I am certain, I can do better. Can you recommend Teas by brand and type that you use to make great ice tea. As for sweetner do you go simple syrup, straight sugar, or honey?

I have an extensive array of loose leaf teas but when I was in college, I was using lipton bags or Luzzian (sp?) bags to make pretty good ice tea.

Any insight would be appreciate.
