    Add 13 cups of water?????????.?????
    My boyfriend loves sweet tea. Every time we eat out he orders it, but it is not the most common beverage served here in Minnesota. They alway seem to have unsweet tea or rasperry tea. I made Tricia's recipe tonight and it was a big hit! The perfect balance of flavor. We used Lipton tea bags and Crystal Sugar. Make some and enjoy :
    Try Luzianne tea with a Crystal Sugar.... You'll love it! Oh what a difference a tea makes....
    This is a really good tea recipe...LOVE it!!!
    This is the best sweet tea ever. I make a gallon every couple days and thank Trisha as I drink it. The sweetness is perfect and the brewed tea flavor can't be beat. I use to live on soda, now I am a sweet tea girl, winter or summer.
