Homemade Sweet Tea

I mentioned a few weeks back how much we've been enjoying sweet tea this summer.

Want to whip up a batch for yourself? It's super-easy to do and so extremely delicious!

Sweet Tea
9 cups of water
1 Lipton family-size tea bag
1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar

Bring four cups of water to a boil on stove top.

Remove from heat, add tea bag. Let tea bag steep 10-15 minutes.

Discard tea bag. Pour tea into pitcher and immediately add sugar. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.

Add remaining five cups of {cool} water to the pitcher; stir.

Let the tea cool to room temperature before refrigerating.

My recommendation: Serve with ice, a slice of lemon, and mint leaves. It's irresistible!

Enjoy this very delicious and summery refreshment!
