Make-it-Yourself Monday: Sweet Southern Tea

Thanks to Suzanne for sharing this weeks' Make-it-Yourself Monday idea.

Sweet Southern Tea

6 regular tea bags
6 C. water
2 C. sugar

Bring tea bags and water to a rolling boil. Let boil for 15 seconds. Steep for five to ten minutes. Put sugar into gallon pitcher and add hot tea. Stir vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Add water until pitcher is full. Chill.

Are there projects you'd like to see in our Make-it-Yourself Monday feature? What do-it-yourself ideas are you wanting to learn about this spring?

I live in Tennessee. I didn't realize sweet tea was a treat or that there was a recipe? It's an everyday thirst quencher in these neck of the woods! :)

I live in SC and make Sweet Tea every other day. No treat's necessity ! LOL! As much sugar as there is in it, it SHOULD be a treat ;-)

We drink a gallon and a half of tea a day here in Alabama. There are 7 of us in our family. I only put a cup of suger in now, though. We cut it back to both save money and so much suger in our body. I now can't drink it with more suger. So, my tip, is to little by little lower the amount of suger until you don't like the taste.
