Cold Sweet Tea

 IMG_8424r

I have never been much for hot tea or cold tea until recently.  My girl loves tea, she even has her own little cabinet plump full of assorted tea bags.  Any how….I came across this post on Pinterest……How I LOVE thee!  Although I will admit to drinking a diet crack pepsi now and again I have been making and slurping down this tea on a regular basis.

  • 1/2 gallon of water
  • 4 tea bags (I like the fruity stuff!)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar

Heat water to boil with tea bags, turn heat off, add sugar.  Steep for 4 hours or if your me an eternity.  I initially started with the1/2 cup of cane sugar but I’ve slowly weaned myself down to less than 1/4 cup as suggested by my sister in-law.  She said “you won’t miss it” and she was right. I have also used maple syrup as well for a sugar substitute.

Cool and serve in a glass overflowing with ice……
