Be careful, too heavy a pinch of baking soda tastes salty. I wou1ld make this again and again but I have another procedure that works for me:
Fill my 2 qt pitcher almost full with water from the hot tap (our hot water is softened) plus 1 or 2 large tea bags (Tetley or Luzianne). Heat this on high in the microwave for 10 minutes and let sit until cool enough to handle. Remove tea bags, add a big scoop of turbinado sugar (probably 3/4 cup). Chill and serve over ice. I add other flavor teas occasionally (orange spice, chai, mint, ...). We had some issues with our kitchen sink that required turning off the cold water for a few days. This is when I discovered that softened water makes a smother tea with no clouding or bitterness.
