A delicious tea that brings you back home and delightfully impresses anyone who tastes it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 family-size tea bags or 3 -4 regular tea bags
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) envelope unsweetened lemon kool-aid (I specifically use Lemonade Kool-Aide)
  • 1 gallon water

Directions

  1. 1. Place teabags in a 4 cup microwavable safe container (I use a pyrex measuring cup). For a tea with more body, double the tea bag amounts.
  2. 2. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Place sugar and koolaide in empty gallon size container.
  4. 4. Pour hot tea from microwave into the empty container with the sugar and koolaide squeezing out teabags. Stir hot liquid until sugar is dissolved.
  5. 5. Fill container with remaining water and enjoy.
  6. The lemon sweet tea will be warm at first. Its great over ice and it's so good that it is still delicious even when ice melts in it. Refrigerate for a few hours to enjoy cold. It's served best over ice.
