Family-sized tea bags contain approximately 7 ounces of tea leaves. One bag is equal to three to four individual bags and makes up to four 8-ounce servings of tea. Family-sized tea bags, which are available in regular or decaffeinated flavors, are specifically blended for making iced tea.
According to Tetley, using a hot tea formula to make iced tea may cause the tea to become cloudy when it is refrigerated. Most tea manufacturers have developed a cold-brew formula that uses cold water and produces a pitcher of tea within five minutes. To make a 2-quart pitcher of iced tea, use two family-sized teabags and 4 cups of water.
