This recipe makes 1 gallon of sweet tea. Need two gallons for a party? Just double the recipe.

4family sized tea bags
Put about 1 quart of the water and the sugar in a pan and bring to a full boil stirring some until the sugar is dissolved.
Remove pan from heat and put the tea bags in the pan and steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags. Do NOT squeeze them as this will make the tea astringent.
Let cool and add the rest of the water.
I like and use Luzianne brand tea bags for sweet tea. Any brand should do though!If you like mint tea you can use mint tea bags instead which is good. Not sure if you will find family size mint tea bags. A family size tea bag is equal to 4 tea bags for a single cup of tea.
