she {hearts} the best sweet tea ever

It may sound silly, but after thirty years of making sweet tea I think I’ve finally found the secret. I’m even willing to share!

Fill a two-quart sauce pan almost full of filtered water.

Bring to a rolling boil.

Remove from heat and add 10 tagless black tea bags or one iced tea sized bag.

Cover and let tea steep for 20 minutes.

Remove tea bags and add sugar.  (We use 3/4 cup raw sugar. We don’t like really sweet iced tea.

If you like it sweet, add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar to your warm tea concentrate.)

Stir to dissolve sugar. Let tea rest (covered) until close to room temperature then add it in a clean gallon container (we use old milk and OJ jugs)

Fill the container with the tea concentrate and filtered water. Shake. Enjoy!!
