It was very good with 4 big bags. Following the above recipe's directions this is what works best for me:
-1 gallon jug of "drinking water". Pour 2 cups off & save to top off, (needs room for 2 cups sugar) or use it for the ice cubes.
-4 Family Size Teabags (I use 5 for decaffeinated)
-Refrigerate if convenient till very cold. (That way it doesn't get
watery from ice melting when served in a tall "iced tea glass".)
So, 2 cups sugar is perfect for a GALLON of finished product!
Note: Some areas in the south do make extremely sweet tea. But they generally add fresh squeezed lemon juice as well as the garnish of slices. You need the sugar then!
PS: A gallon can be a lot for 1 person. Sweet tea in the refrigerator becomes cloudy after a few days. Sweeten, to taste, by the glass and it will easily stay clear and fresh for a month.
