Sweet Tea Time

The best drink in the summertime is sweet tea!



So...boil up some water,



throw in two tea bags, I use Lipton decaf.




bring water to a rolling boil and then turn it off.




pour hot tea into a pitcher...




While tea is still hot add 1 cup of sugar. 

Yes, one whole cup...you will thank me later!




Add cold water to the mixture





Stir stir stir....




Put ice in a cup and taste it...oh what yummy sweetness!!

Your welcome :)



And since it is decaf the kids had ice tea for the first time today.  
And yes they are having iced sweet tea in their PJ's! 
It is summertime and we are veggin' today.

Drinkin' up all the sweet tea in the house to keep us cool.

You should also add that sweet tea made in Texas is like ninetyfivegillionmillion times better than any other sweet tea. Well, I guess Okie sweet tea is okay, too... ;)
Your kids are cute sippin' on their sweet tea.

Iced Tea is my favorite drink in the summer. I usually drink it unsweetened or with a little honey but adding sugar once in awhile is such a yummy treat!!!

My hubby would love this...me, not so much! I know it is strange for someone from the south to not like sweet tea, but I just can't stand the stuff!

Yummy, Sweet Tea is one of our absolute favorite summer drinks. There is nothing like sitting on the patio, sipping tea, and watching the kids play in the yard.

Emily said...

Oh yeah, we're sweet tea drinkers too. We can't be from the south and not!
