We are southern folks here and stuck in the great white north with its many charms but no sweet tea.
Just in case you were wondering…here is how I make sweet tea.
10-12 black tea bags
3/4-2 cups sugar
1/2 gallon of water
Boil that up on the stove until the tea is dark and the sugar dissolves. Then dump into a gallon pitcher. Top off with cold water and/or ice. Chill.
Be mystified when you must rinse and repeat the next day…especially when your tea drinkers are suffering from southern homesickness.
Note: Instant sweet tea does not substitute for the house wine of the south.
