I have to admit I wasnt sure how the tea would taste.... But it is great!! I did add a bit more sugar though, but i have a sweet tooth! I also only had small tea bags instead of family sized, so i used 6 or 7 small bags. --> This is the simplest tea ever though. Cool and ready to drink immediatly too. Thanks so much for posting. I will definatly make this again!

This tea is the perfect compliment to any meal. I did use the cold brew family-sized tea bags and a Splenda blend. The tea turned out perfectly. Made for December 2009 Let's P-A-R-T-Y.

This is how my dad would always make it and I love it! He'd set it on the window sill and let it do it's work. Always turned out perfect!

My son-in-law, who was born & raised in the south, said this is really good. Everyone else agreed, this is great sweet tea. When making for myself, 3/4 cup sugar is the perfect amount. Thanks!

I'm a southern girl myself, and this is how I always make my tea. The only exception is sometimes for variety I throw in one or two bags of raspberry black tea. Also, I usually make it by the gallon, because it goes so quickly in my household.

I used 6 small Lipton cold brew tea bags. I added 3/4 cup sugar and it was sweet enough for me. I let mine sit for 30 min. and it tasted great. Hubby loves sweet tea so I know that I will be making this again.

My DH and I enjoyed this on a hot May afternoon. I liked using the clothespin, it made it so easy to get the bags out. Thanks!

my southern hubby's fav tea -- he likes it sweet so i add a little extra sugar-thanks for the great recipe. If i use the lipton cold brew- the tea is ready in about 15 minutes-- takes an hour for regular tea bags--thanks for this great recipe
