Steep an oolong tea bag in 2 cups of boiled filtered water for 10 minutes. Allow the tea to cool to room temperature naturally or help speed it up by transferring it to the fridge after steeping.
Meanwhile, combine the dark brown sugar with 6 tablespoons of filtered water and simmer until the sugar has fully dissolved. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes before setting it aside. Again, you can allow the simple syrup to cool to room temperature naturally or in the fridge.
In a glass, add in a handful of ice cubes and half of a lemon, sliced. Add half of the tea to the glass. Then add half of the brown sugar simple syrup.
