One of my favorite delicacies of southern cuisine is a tall glass of ice cold sweet tea. People in other parts of the country might not completely understand our love affair with this curious beverage, but I'll bet that if I poured you a glass after a hot day in the sun and set you in a rocking chair on my front porch, you'd start to understand.
Southern Sweet Tea
6 cups boiling water 3 family-sized lipton tea bags or 6 regular tea bags 1 cup sugar Ice
Steep the tea bags in in the boiling water for about 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags and pour into a half-gallon sied pitcher. Stir in the sugar until completely dissolved. Add ice until the pitcher is full. The ice will melt as it cools the tea. Serve cold with fresh ice.
