Southern Sweet Tea
gallon sweet tea
(16 cups) water
(16 individual sized) tea bags (I use Lipton decaf, or Luzianne)
to 2 cups sugar
In a large stock pot, bring the water to boil over high heat. Turn off the burner and add tea bags. Cover and steep for 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour desired amount of sugar into a gallon-sized pitcher. When the tea is done steeping, pour into the pitcher and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Serve immediately into a glass full of ice. Store in the fridge.
