Southern Sweet Iced Tea

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin'

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 ;)
