Perfect Sweet Tea

My ex is from the south & he loved his sweet tea....Which he obviously turned me onto. Ever since he taught me how to make it, I've been hooked!!! 

Here is what you'll need: 
* 12 Reg. Sz'd Tea Bags
* 4 C. Boiling Water
* 12 C. Cold Water
* 1 1/2 C. Sugar
* 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda

Makes 1 Gallon

* Add baking soda & tea bags to pitcher, pour boiling water over tea bags. 
Cover & allow to steep for 15 - 20 minutes. 

* Remove tea bags. Add Sugar. Stir
{adding sugar while water is still hot allows the sugar to dissolve quicker}
Once completely dissolved, add cold water & then refrigerate until cold & you're ready to drink it.

Of course I am impatient & add ice to my desired cup & drink right away ;) 
But to each his own!
