    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    When you order 'tea' in TX you will be asked 'sweet' or 'unsweet'. It will then arrive in a big glass with lots of ice! Here is the way we make 'Swayte Tay" or Sweet Tea! Oh soo goooodd! Dont like it sweet- just leave out the sugar- or splenda.

      I already have a great method for making tea with regular-size tea bags, but for some reason, I always have the family-size bags in the pantry. This turned out far too weak. It hardly tasted like tea at all. I will try again using this for only 1/2 gallon and see if that works better.

      This is really good, but a bit weak for me. Seems like the tea bags are smaller than they used to be, puzzling. At any rate, I added 2 more bags to another cup of boiling water and it was better. Will definitely use this method, just use more tea bags.

      Good ice tea, but it might be a little weak for some. I will continue to make it using 1/2 c. splenda and 1/2 c. sugar for myself. Hubby's doctor said tea was a no-no for hubby as it is kidney stone causing in some people. I've definitely cut back on tea since I've learned about the kidney stones, but I love iced tea and your recipe. Thanks for sharing!
