1/4-1/2cupsimple syrup(to taste; can substitute honey or agave)
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Turn off the heat, and add 4 tea bags. Steep for 20 minutes. You can let it sit longer if you need to make things in advance, but just be mindful that this can cause slight bitterness, so it’s best to remove the tea bags. Allow the tea to cool.
To your pitcher, add the brewed tea, 2 cups ice, lemon slices, tamarind concentrate, and your sweetener of choice. We’ve offered ¼ cup as a starting point, but you should tailor it to your preferences for sweetness.
Stir thoroughly using a long wooden spoon, and serve!
