I use my Instant Pot for a lot of things. In the summer, I make sweet tea in it! It's easier than making it on the stove because I don't have to adjust the temperature on the stove or turn it off. I can just add the ingredients and walk away.

I use regular Lipton tea bags for my Instant Pot iced tea. I think they give the best flavor, and they are inexpensive.

I add real sugar to mine. You can use a sugar substitute, stevia, or coconut sugar. You can also make it sugar free and add sweetener by the cup if you want.

I use the 6 quart Duo Instant Pot. It's perfect for our family of 5! I can make dinner, yogurt, and other recipes in it.

  • 2 quarts water (for the Instant Pot)
  • 2 quarts cold water
  • 10 regular sized tea bags

Remove the tea bags from their wrappers and remove the paper tag. Place in Instant Pot.
Add 2 quarts water and sugar to your Instant Pot Turn the valve to sealing and turn it on high pressure for 4 minutes.
Let it naturally release for at least 15 minutes.
Remove the tea bags with a set of tongs. Squeeze them to get the tea out and set aside. Let the tea cool until just warm.
Fill a gallon pitcher about half way with ice. Pour the Instant Pot sweet iced tea over it. Then fill the pitcher with cold water. I used less than 2 quarts because of the ice.
