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 : item not reviewed by moderator and published

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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
That is the correct number of additional cups of water needed to make a gallon. There are 16 cups in a gallon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
