This sweet tea was excellent! I just moved out of my parents' house and had to start making my sweet tea on my own. The first few tries weren't so great...I even tried one of those tea makers. This is my favorite recipe by far...thank you for making my life a little better! :)

Excellent tea!! I have been trying to figure out how to make tea like my mom, and this is it. Of course, I'm also from Texas and this is the only way to drink tea. I used Splenda also.

Perfectly refreshing... Added some lemon, and I enjoyed to the max! I make this all the time with Splenda, so my sugar stays under control...

I think the only thing you may want to change is the name of your recipe. I would rename it more accurately, Perfect Sweet Iced Tea.:) The amounts you mention are a perfect combination that results in a refreshing, delicious Iced Tea.I used Liptom family sized tea bag. I may try it with splenda but it's so good with the cup of sugar. How lucky to find this just in time for the summer. thanks for sharing.

This is the way that I make iced tea and am known for the best sweet tea around(except for my mom). Nice strong, sweet tea. I made as directed last night and the only change I would make is to add an extra 1/4 cup of sugar. Made for ZWT 07

I made up a pitcher of this in the afternoon and this evening it's going down oh so nicely. This is the tea I grew up on (I have Texas in my blood). I used Splenda and it just wonderful, it's the real Texas Tea. You just can't go wrong with this simple and delicious recipe.

One of the reasons I like to go to the South so much is because of it's sweet tea! I adore it. I am so glad to have found a way to make it like it tastes there. This is excellent. Just the right amount of sugar for me! Thanks for sharing!

This was easy to make, and really refreshing. Only change I did make was to add a little more sugar, I like a really sweet tea. Thanks for sharing :)
