Sweet Summertime Tea

Oh sweet summertime! So many wonderful things come with this time of the year. One favorite is sweet tea. I used to not be a sweet tea fan until this recipe. Plain jane was my way of choice, so trust me... This recipe is good if it makes me sway the other way! So kick up your feet and pour yourself a glass of this crisp summertime refreshment!

Sweet Summertime Tea
*Makes one gallon*

12 Lipton tea bags
4 Cups boiling water
12 Cups cold water
1 Cup sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Add baking soda & tea bags to your pitcher. Pour boiling water over bags & soda and let sit for about 15 minutes. Remove tea bags with a squeeze to make sure you get every ounce of flavor out of the bags and throw the bags away. Then pour in your sugar and stir around until it is dissolved. Once dissolved pour your cold water in and give it another stir. Let it chill in the fridge for a while. Once chilled pour over ice, kick back and enjoy!!

*TIPS* Add some lemon juice and serve with a sliced lemon wedge to give a lemon twang. My preferred way to drink it. Love it!
