Southern Sweet Tea
Submitted by: AngelBreath
3 family sized tea bags
1 to 1  1/3 cups of sugar
a pinch baking soda (about 1/4 teaspoon)
Bring 3-4 cups of water to a boil. Add a pinch of baking soda to the water and add 3 family sized tea bags. Remove from heat and cover. Allow to sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Pour into gallon pitcher and add sugar. Then fill with cold water. Refrigerate. Serves 2.
Note: The soda takes out the bitterness and darkens the tea ... this small amount doesnt change the taste.
