Southern Sweet Tea

How many of you know how to make true, authentic, Southern-style sweet tea at home? Do you know how to make it or do you rely on your favorite go-to restaurant for sweet tea?


If you've given it a shot before but it just didn't taste right or if you're a novice trying it for the first time, here's a recipe I'd like to suggest:


Southern Sweet Tea Ingredients:

3 bags of Luzianne tea 1.5 cups granulated sugar Water Directions:

1. Fill a 3 quart saucepan 3/4 full of water 2. Put 3 bags decaf Luzianne tea in it and bring to a boil 3. Once boiling, lower heat to medium or to a simmer for 7 minutes 4. Remove from heat and let it cool a little 5. Meanwhile, pour 1.5 cups of sugar into a gallon pitcher 6. Pour hot tea over sugar and stir 7. Add water up to the pitcher fill line 8. Chill overnight before serving

Now, to add lemon or not to add lemon, that is the question...
