* 4 family sized orange pekoe tea bags (Lipton is best)
* 1 1/2 cups white sugar
* 1 gallon water
Pour a half gallon of water into a pot on the stove and bring to a rolling boil.
Pour the boiling water into a gallon sized pitcher, add the sugar and stir until completely dissolved.
Add your tea bags and brew for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and add half a gallon of cold water.
Stir, chill and enjoy!
I also like to make sun tea. It's the same thing except the tea is brewed by the heat of the sun through-out the day. You need a clear glass, gallon-sized pitcher for this. Fill the pitcher with some room temperature water, add the sugar and the tea bags and then just let it sit outside in a sunny spot. Put it out early and you will have tea by the end of the day. If you don't have a lid for your pitcher you can use saran wrap.
