Sweet Tea

Simple Southern Sweet Tea

It's true, we southerners love our sweet tea. I cannot tell you how many times I've been in a restaurant in another part of the country and sure enough, when they ask me what I would like to drink ~ out comes sweet tea. The server usually will smile at me and let me know they do not have sweet tea there. I think they can tell by my accent already where I'm from and understand I just couldn't help myself. Here in the south everybody serves sweet tea. We keep a pitcher in the fridge at all times in case we have company. I'm going to share an easy recipe that eliminates boiling water etc. Here is what you'll need:

3 Lipton Cold Brew Tea Bags
1 Gallon size Pitcher
1 1/2 cups of Sugar
Water
Lemon - optional 
First from the faucet - wait for the water to run hot and put about 2" of hot water in the pitcher. Add the sugar and stir until it is completely dissolved. Next add your 3 tea bags and fill the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water. Let the tea stand for  20 minutes, remove the tea bags, stir and refrigerate. You can also serve immediately. It's just that easy.
