Sweet Tea * Recipe & a Book

Happy Monday * July 2th !

Today I am post about a Southern  Tradition :  Ice Tea

If you want it – Sweetened or Not ? Flavored or Not ? Its’s perfect in these hot days of Summer. With July being Ice Tea month -Let’s Cool off with a glass :



3 family size tea bags (I prefer Luzianne, but use what you got)
2 cups sugar
1 gallon of water
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda*

Boil only ½ gallon of the water on stove. Once water comes to a roiling boil, pour into one gallon pitcher. Add 3 tea bags and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (you don’t need to stir.) Set your kitchen timer (I use my microwave) for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take out tea bags.  Do not squish tea bags before taking them out, just let them drip for a minute. If you do that, you’re likely to get some tea leaves in your drink. Add sugar and stir. Add the other ½ gallon of cold water to the pitcher and stir again. Cool in fridge for several hours.
