Recipe by Lab Chef

This is my (southern) wife's recipe, she introduced me to it when we first met, and I have been drinking it daily ever since. In the last few years due minor sugar reductions we have lowered the sugar level from 2/3 cup to 1/2. I really have not noticed much of a difference. I still sometimes like really sweet southern sweet tea, but this is a daily drinker.
