4 cups water, freshly drawn
4 Family size Tea Bags (we used both Luzianne & Liptons)
pinch of baking soda
2 cups white sugar
10 cups additional freshly drawn water
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in saucepan. Add teabags and sugar and stir until sugar is well dissolved. Remove from heat. Let steep for 5 minutes. Remove teabags and be sure to press out all of the tea with the back of a spoon. Add a pinch of baking soda. This keeps the tea from getting cloudy and bitter. Pour into a one gallon pitcher. Add remaining water and ice to fill the pitcher.
*Note: I have never been a SWEET TEA kind of gal, but after spending a week in Nashville, Tennessee, it was sweet tea or nothing! It really is good and refreshing! Perfect for a hot summer day.
