I never was much of a tea drinker and didn't know how to make good tea. I was having to make tea for the family gathering for Christmas Eve and found this recipe. I followed the ingredients list exactly, but I changed the method a bit. I wasn't sure my glass pitcher could stand boiling water poured into it, so I boiled the water in a pan, turned it off, put in the pinch of baking soda and steeped the tea bags directly in the pan with the 2 cups of water. While it was steeping, I poured the cool 6 cups of water in the pitcher. When steeping time was up, I removed the tea bags and dissolved the sugar in the pan before pouring into the pitcher with the cool water.
My grandson likes the full amount of sugar. I can do with a couple of tablespoons less. It's great tea and very smooth, not bitter. Thank you! Now I'm a tea drinker!
