DIRECTIONS

  • Hold tea bags lined up evenly by the strings and make a loop knot to hold them together. Pull off paper and staple (from paper side). Set aside.
  • In a one gallon pitcher, add very hot water. Stir in the sugar till dissolved.
  • Add tea bags and dunk into water a few times, then leave them in the pitcher. Cover with lid of pitcher and refrigerate.
  • Wait until it is very cold (at least 3-4 hours). The flavor changes until it reaches the 'cold' state.
  • Drink and enjoy. (I leave the bags set in the pitcher, but recommend taking them out after about 8 hours--- IF it lasts that long! We make 2 pitchers at a time down here in the south. :).
