Sweet Iced Tea

If you have not figured this out about me yet, just let me tell you how much I love sweet iced tea.  I have sweet iced tea with my oatmeal for breakfast.  I leave my home in the morning headed to work with a tervis tumbler of sweet iced tea.  I take a container of sweet tea to have with my lunch each day and yes I have sweet iced tea to go with my supper each evening.  I occasionally squeeze in a diet coke or sprite and rarely some good ole well water.  We keep a couple of gallons of sweet tea in our refrigerator at all times.  I truly feel like a southern girl when I sit on my front porch in the evening and sip sweet iced tea.

small boiler

Fill small boiler half full of water.  Add 2 tea bags.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and let steep for 15 to 30 min.  Place 1 cup of sugar in a gallon tea pitcher.  Fill the pitcher 3/4 full of water.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  After the tea has been allowed to steep, add tea to pitcher and then stir.  Place tea pitcher in refrigerator to cool.  Keep in refrigerator when you are not serving.

To me, the tea has a better taste after it has become cold.
