Keurig brewers are designed to brew 1 cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa at a time. To use your Keurig brewer, insert a sealed cup of coffee, tea or hot-cocoa mix, called a "K-cup," into the machine and press the appropriate button for the size of your cup. If you would like to brew iced tea, buy a K-cup made especially for cold brewing. These cups contain more coffee or tea so that your beverage doesn't become as watered down when the ice melts.

Step 1

Push the power button on the Keurig brewer. Wait for the "Ready to Brew" message to appear on the screen.

Step 2

Open the lid of the Keurig brewer and insert the K-cup for iced tea. Close the lid. Place your mug on the drip tray.

Step 3

Press the button for the size of mug you are using. You will pour the tea over ice, so you will end up with a larger glass of iced tea than the mug of hot tea you are brewing. For example, if you select the 6- to 8-oz., or "Large" cup, setting on your Keurig brewer, you will have a 10- to 12-oz. glass of tea once you pour it over ice in a large glass.

Step 4

Wait for the Keurig brewer to stop brewing. Remove the mug of hot tea from the drip tray and pour the tea into the glass filled with ice.

Step 5

Add sugar and lemon to taste.
