    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    This is how my Granny made sweet tea and it is some kind of sweet. Know that and beware. Pa-Paw used to down 2-3 glasses after working in the garden all day. Back off the sugar if you can't handle it. This one is for true southerners only ;)

      Very smooth iced tea! Being from Texas I have drank a lot of iced tea in my life, seeing as we have it with every meal, and this was some of the best. This is exactly how my mom taught me to make tea with the exception of the baking soda. The soda is the key and I will never make tea without it again! Thanks!
