We’ve decided to make Southern Sweet Tea. While most people can use a pitcher, we can’t because we drink a lot of Sweet Tea in this house. I use a large Circle Glass Sun Tea Jar it’s about 1.5 gallons and I have to make it about twice a week.
I fill my Circle Glass Sun Tea Jar, about three fourths of the way with room temperature water.
I always use Lipton, because if it ain’t Lipton Iced Tea it ain’t tea. (Debate it with your mama..lol!)
I add two cups of water and eight bags of tea, until it comes to a boil. Then you remove it from heat and allow to set for about five minutes.
I start out with about two cups of sugar, but add more if needed for taste. The sugar is added to room temperature water, which means it will dissolve quickly because the water is not cold.
Don’t forget to stir your sugar.
Remove your tea bags from your brewed tea and pour into your sugar and water mixture.
Add lemons and ice to your mason jar, and a straw if you’re feeling fancy!
Remember here in the South when Life hands you Lemons, put them in your Sweet Tea.

Remember ya’ll not everyone in the South eats fried chicken, but if you fry it just right. We won’t turn it down!
