My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.
I am surprised by the number of people who LOVE sweet tea, but don’t know how to make it. So here it is folks. A “recipe”. I honestly have to say that I am not sure exactly how much sugar I use, so I promise to revise this once I figure out my perfect measurement, but for now, this is what I do.
What you will need:
2 gallon pitcher
5 tea bags
1 1/2 c sugar
Boil some water on the stove in the tea pot. put the sugar in the bottom of the pitcher. hang the bags over the pitcher and when water is boiling pour the water over the tea bags. let the bags sit in the water and stir the sugar until it is dissolved. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Let the bags sit in the water for 15-20 minutes. Refrigerate and/or serve over lots of ice.
