Anywho, I made some today and I think she fell in love
5 family sized tea bags
4 cups boiling water
12 cup cool water
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda (this is the secret ingredient in making the perfect tea, it takes the bitter out)
put baking soda in pitcher (or whatever container you are using, some ppl wont put boiling water into a glass pitcher..., personally i've never had any issues if you're using a nice thick one.)
add tea bags and pour boiling water over them and let them steep for 15 minutes.
remove bags and toss or save for compost..
add sugar and stir until completely dissolved.
ad cold water and chill.
serve over ice.
