    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    My iced tea never turned out the same any time I made it because I never measured. I finally started measuring and wrote down what I used. My family agreed that the following made the perfect pitcher!

      Easy to make, I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, 1 cup is what I normally use for a gallon. Great tea to get us thru until it's warm enough for sun tea. Thanks for sharing!

      This really works. The only change I made was to add a little more sugar because my family really likes SWEET TEA! LOL

      This recipe came in handy when I was visiting my mom's and we all wanted iced tea at the last minute. It was really good. I only used 3/4 cup sugar and it was plenty. Thanks for this easy recipe!
