The best way to get great iced tea - something the South is known for. Not heating the water prevents bitterness.
- Fill a 2 qt pitcher (that's pitcha in the South) about halfway up with ice.
- Clip the clothespin onto the side of the pitcher and"hang" the tea bags through it (keeps the paper from getting in the tea and makes the bags easier to retrieve- you don't want to be seen with your hand in the pitcher here in the South).
- Pour the sugar or Splenda on top of the ice cubes and now fill the pitcher up with water.
- Let sit about an hour, pull out tea bags and serve.
