Iced Tea

  And you thought Iced Tea was a summer time beverage. SILLY, SILLY people; in Lancaster, PA  USA we drink Iced Tea at breakfast, lunch, supper & in between ALL YEAR LONG! Our one local dairy is famous for its' Iced Tea & will ship some anywhere is the USA for $75.00 for 4 gallons ! I will show you how I make my tea. My tea is not sweet or weak but BOLD & SASSY just the way we like it ! EASY TOO! now you won't have to pay all that $$$ for a little bit of tea either!

9 Lipton Tea Bags or your favorite tea !
4 Cups Water.
Place this in a large deep saucepan & bring to a FULL BOIL. I know EVERYONE tells you to NOT boil tea but if you like a full bodied bold tea you must. If you don't I think it taste like weak sissy tea & that is not for me ! I like my coffee weak & my tea STRONG ! Now let this boil about 1 minute. Then turn off the heat and let the tea bags steep in the water for 2 hours.
Next put 3/4 Cup sugar in a gallon pitcher. Pour in your steeped tea removing tea bags but SQUEEZE them into the pitcher to get all the flavor out of those suckers! Stir the tea & sugar until sugar has melted. Add 14 cups of cold water and stir again. Refrigerate & serve over ice. Keeps about a week IF it doesn't get drank before that BUT IT WILL! IF you like a sweeter tea by all means add more sugar but I really like my tea without sugar but I make mine this way as it is how family & friends prefer to drink their tea. as for all those bottled teas out on the market; I do not see how people can drink that syrupy stuff that really does not taste like tea but artificial flavorings! This tea has much less sugar, much more flavor and COST a LOT less! Plus I think you will like it so much more than the stuff you are use to buying !
