Our family loves sweet tea, especially at a party or BBQ. One of my favorite things to do is sit in the backyard and watch the kids play while I sip on an icy glass of sweet tea. I thought it was about time I shared my Perfect Sweet Tea Recipe.
This sweet tea is the perfect balance of flavors, and a pinch of baking soda gives it an ultra smooth finish. Baking soda is the secret ingredient that makes this sweet tea recipe so good!
- 10 regular sized Lipton tea bags
- Fresh filtered water
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, remove from heat and add tea bags.
Let tea steep for about 10 minutes.
Remove tea bags and add sugar to hot water.
Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
Add baking soda and stir again.
Pour tea and sugar mixture into large pitcher.
Add 12 cups of ice water and stir until cooled.
Serve over ice.
Makes one gallon of sweet tea.
