Gather your supplies...
Boil your water.
Put the tea bag into the mug.
Once the water is boiling, pour it into the mug. I used about one cup of water.
While the tea is steeping, add your sugar. I used six teaspoons of sugar as I like my tea very sweet. Add less sugar if you don't want it to be sweet, but remember that you will be adding lime juice!
Allow the tea to steep from three to five minutes depending on how much you like jasmine.
Fill your tall glass halfway full with ice. I used an old Peet's cup I've been saving.
Now is time for the lime juice. I added four tablespoons, which made it VERY limey. If you are not a citrus fan, add less.
Pour the tea into the glass.
Some of ice will melt, so add more to get your drink to the desired temperature.
There you have it! Cheap, easy, and customizable. Comment if it works for you!
