Re: How do you make your sweet tea??
Our stove-top method is to boil the sugar in the water for 10minutes, turn the heat off and add 6 tea bags per gallon. Then we add equal parts ice and make sure to stir well. The sugar being completely melted is the key
We did buy an ice tea maker though and now its the method we use most. I use the same tea bag and ice ratio. I just put sugar in the bottom of the pitcher and stir continuously as the tea flows down into it. Once the machine is done running and im sure the sugar is melted , I throw in the ice.
