MY SWEET TEA

MY SWEET TEA

I must have been a Southern Lady in my other life because there is always a gallon of home-made sweet tea in my refrigerator! I’ve been told many times I make the best sweet tea….There is not a function that goes by that I do not prepare at least 2 gallons of my sweet tea for everyone to enjoy!

1 Gallon Size Tea Bag, Lipton
2 Family Size Tea Bags, Luzianne
Water
2 – 2- 1/2 Cups Sugar (Use extra sugar if you want it super sweet)
1/4 teaspoon – Baking Soda (this IS the SECRET Ingredient!!)

Enough Ice to fill up a 1-gallon container

NOTE: IMPORTANT – DO NOT USE A GLASS PITCHER WHEN MIXING – HOT WATER AND ICE AND GLASS DO NOT MIX – IT MAY CRACK….I use a Gallon Canning Jar or my Tupperware Pitcher.

I use my large 8 cup microwave measuring cup – place sugar in microwavable cup add 2 cups cold water. Microwave 3 minutes – stir to mix the sugar and water – add tea bags and cold water until you have 8 cups of liquid. Microwave 6 minutes.

Sprinkle baking soda into the hot tea. Allow too steep for 15 minutes. After 15 Minutes, remove tea bags and squeeze. Add ice cubes to a gallon pitcher – pour tea over ice cubes – if needed add extra water to make a gallon. Refrigerate until cold and ready to drink. Serve over ice with or without a slice of lemon, sit back – take a nice long sip and ENJOY…..🤎🍋
