Recipe ingredients and directions:
(Makes around one gallon)
10 tea bags
1 cup sugar
1. Boil about 4-5 cups of the water. Steep the tea bags for 2-5 min.
2. Remove the tea bags and dissolve the sugar in the hot tea.
3. Transfer the sweetened tea to a gallon container (we always used a
well-rinsed out milk jug) and fill with cold water and/or ice.
Serve over more ice.
Notes: Yeah, its alot, but it goes fast. You can also use fewer tea
bags (around 4-5) and steep them longer (a half hour) for "Aunt Nancy's
Ice Tea"(tm) :). Sugar is to taste and can be freely adjusted. I use
decaffinated tea bags here at school and it tastes the same to me.
Never tried artifical sweeteners - but I don't see why they wouldn't
work. Just add them last, after the tea has cooled.
Now I'm thirsty . .
