    Now Dameon, that is just WRONG :lol:. Thomas, everyone always raved about my grandmother's sweet tea, so here is her recipe.......

    Gran's Sweet Tea
    2 family size Lipton tea bags
    2 1/2 - 3 qt. stainless steel bowl
    Teakettle (or saucepan)
    2 quarts water

    Bring water to a boil, pour over teabags in stainless steel bowl. Let steep three minutes (four if you like stronger tea). Remove teabags, add two cups (yes, I said two cups) sugar and stir to dissolve. Let stand until partially cool, pour into pitcher and refrigerate. Serve over lots of ice.

    This is SWEET TEA. I cut the sugar down to 1/3 of this amount when making tea myself.

    There are also tea makers (much like coffee makers) available on the market. They make decent tea, but I prefer tea made the old-fashioned way.

    If all else fails, buy a box of Lipton and follow the directions on the box! :wink:

    LOL. southern sweet tea recipe. Make tea and add surger. Too your likeing.
    Tea, coffee is about as simple as it gets. Read the directions on box. Dang its that simple. Then add what you would add when going out to eat. Ask Grandparents.
    Sometimes a little real lemon, orange or what ever. Main thing is tea and sugar
    If it does not work for ya experience and taste buds will fix the problem. Trust me experience is the best thing next to directions on box.

    The secret to southern on anything is, do it like you like with respect and amen's. :wink: :smile2:

    We make tea using our coffee pot.

    Instead of putting coffee in a filter in the top, we put in 8-10 regular tea bags. Make a full pot of STRONG tea. Pour it in a gallon pitcher with 1 1/4 cups sugar, (more if you like sweet tea), stir it until the sugar is disolved, then add cold water to fill the pitcher. Serve over ice.

    Good tea is MUCH better than pop

    Sweet tea is better if you let it sit in the frig. over night.
    Also, the quality of the water you use is very important. Try using some store bought mineral water if your water is the problem.

    Lipton Cold brew is the way to go! 3 Family size bags ia a gallon of cold water for 20 minutes and its done, add a cup of sugar if you like.
