Okay, you can’t eat tea, but this is what we had recently…for Norm’s birthday to be exact. He loves sweet tea (AriZona sweet tea and McDonald’s $1 sweet tea) so we (Melody and I) decided to try it out. How simple!
Of course, we tried a SMOOTH SWEET TEA recipe from allrecipes.com, and it was pretty good.
We used Lipton’s Iced Tea which came in the bigger tea bags, so instead of the 6 bags that it says, we used 3. One of the reviews says that if you steep it for longer time, it’s more bitter, so go with what you like. I did the 15 minutes. I forgot the pinch of baking soda, and I’m not really sure what it does for the tea. If anyone knows, let me know, or I’ll try it next time and tell ya. A few reviewers say that it is too sweet, so they toned it down to 1/2 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup like it says for the recipe. Norm likes it sweet (I think that’s why it’s called sweet tea, people!) so we’ll stick with the 1/2 cup.
