Southern Sweet Iced Tea Recipe #1 Ingredients 3 Family Size Tea Bags2 Cups Of Cold Water1 Cup of SugarDirections We in the south make the best iced tea you'll find. Maybe it's how it's done, or maybe it is the water in the south, or maybe it's just that a southern belle has put a lot of TLC into making the tea. Who knows! We recommend Luzianne Tea Bags if available. Place the two cups water in a pot and add the tea bags. Bring to a boil, do not continue boiling. Remove from heat and let steep. Pour warm tea into empty pitcher. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Fill remaining pitcher with cold water. Optional - some women say they use less water and add ice to the tea.
