    Treewoman's Note:

    Sweet and refreshing tea; back in the 1950's-60's my best friend's mom (Ruth) used to make this every day and served it poolside when we were kids. The "secret" is adding the sugar to taste to the strong brew, then adding ice cubes.

      If I serve this in 32-ounce cups, will I go to jail? ;-) Refreshing!

      This was made for a friend of ours who loves iced tea, but doesn't care for what I usually make, which is a sweet Southern tea! So, I followed your recipe right on down, & included just enough sugar to make it bearable (for me, anyway!) & then left it for him to add any additional sugar (or not) that he wanted! Worked out great, & he loved the tea! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]

      This made a nice iced tea. I used decaf, and about 1 cup per tea bag. I halved the recipe and enjoyed the tea, not too sweet. Thanks! Made for PAC, spring 2013.
