As soon as the weather warms up all I can think about is Ice Tea. I guess I am not alone because lately I see Mc Donald's and Dunkin Doughnuts advertising their Sweat Tea. If you have ever had Mc Donald's sweet tea then you know just how sweet it is. I ordered one and couldn't drink it because I felt as though I was creating cavities with each and every sip. I have loved ice tea since I was a kid and I do like it sweet but not too sweet. Between me and the boys we go through quite a bit of ice tea during the summer. So after spending way to much on the store bought stuff, Gold Peak I started making my own. I saved us a ton and I actually like mine better. I saw some on sale and bought a bottle and was shocked that I actually preferred mine over theirs.
7 cups of water
3 black tea bags. I use Tetley or Lipton
4 heaping tablespoons of sugar
Add 7 cups of water to medium pan and bring to a boil. Once boiling turn it off and add sugar. Stir the water around with spoon to make sure the sugar is all blended and dissolved. Add 3 tea bags and let sit and cool. Add the tea to a pitcher and refrigerate. Double it and serve to your guests this Easter. I guarantee they will love it as much as we do. You can add less sugar or more depending how you like it.
