Stone Cottage Sweet Tea

Everyone who drinks my sweet tea always says, "How do you make sweet tea?  I love this!"  Here is the recipe: 
 
 
 
Stone Cottage Sweet Tea

Water
Ice
1 Cup Sugar
2 Family Size Tea Bags

Fill a large sauce pan about three fourths full of water.  Add one cup of sugar.  DO NOT STIR.  Place the sauce pan over heat.  Let the sugar MELT into the water.  Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat.  Do not boil the tea.  Add two family size tea bags.  I use a chop stick to "dunk" them under the water a couple of times.  Let steep for at least 10 minutes.  Pour the tea into a large 4 quart (one gallon) pitcher filled about halfway with ice.  If the pitcher is not completely full, add more water. 
 
You know what to do next.  Pour yourself a glass and enjoy!

    If you have a moment to spare I'd be thrilled if you could share your tea recipe at my weekly Say G'Day linky party. It's on right now and this would be a fabulous addition.

  30. Marci, I'm not a tea drinker, but my husband loves it. He likes to make it himself and no wonder, how do you make something that you don't like yourself? I'm going to have to try your recipe and see if I can get a thumbs up! Thanks for sharing with us at Brag About It! Have a great week!
