I disagree with users who have said this recipe is too sweet. As North Carolina born & bred, this is the recipe I remember from church gatherings and lunch at grandmother's house from my youth. You have to follow the recipe exactly as stated - no cutting corners. Only use Family Size teabags; I find that Lipton 100% Natural (Special Brew for Sweet Tea) gives the best flavor. I use a PLASTIC 2 gallon pitcher. It won't break. After boiling the water, removing from heat, adding tea bags, letting them steep for 5 minutes, remove tea bags, bring back to just boiling, add to pitcher with sugar, stir, then instead of adding more water, I just fill it to the top with ice cubes. Delicious. My family of 5 can finish the whole pitcher in one day.
