- Boil 2 cups water.
- Add 8 regular tea bags and steep for 10 minutes.
- Remove tea bags and pour hot tea over 3/4 cup sugar.
- Stir until dissolved, then add cold water to make 2 quarts
Note that this is SOUTHERN sweet tea (if you can see through it, it’s not strong enough, and if you can’t pour it over pancakes, it’s not sweet enough) so you may need to adjust tea and/or sugar to suit Yankee or Midwestern tastes.
