Sweet Tea

I would like to start off my saying I forgot to take a picture of this delicious beverage in a cup (I’m terrible, what can I say lol). This sweet tea recipe is not ours and in no way are we claiming it. I did one thing different than the instructions, which was dissolve the sugar while the water was boiling. I give all credit to the website I found it on, you can find the link at the bottom of this post.

I will admit I have a thing for Sweet Tea, whether it be Mcdonalds or Arizona. I love them both! So instead of spending $1 every time I want sweet tea, I figured making it myself would be better. Without further ado below is the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 6 Lipton tea bags
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 4 quarts of water

Directions

    1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a rapid boil.
