Picture from the web...Southern Sweet Iced Tea
3 Family sized tea bags
a pinch baking soda (about 1/4 teaspoon) (sorry meant to added soda is optional)
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of water
In the south we make the best sweet iced tea you'll ever taste.I also like to put a slice of lemon in my tea...
Place the two cups water in a pot add a pinch of baking soda to the water and add 3 family sized tea bags. Bring to boil, remove from heat and cover. Allow to sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Add the sugar to the hot tea and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Then fill remaining pitcher with cold water.
The soda takes out the bitterness and darkens the tea....this small amount doesn't change the taste.
