Sweet Tea

Sweet Tea is a southern tradition.  I grew up drinking sweet tea and now my grown children love it too.  When I have guests over, I like to leave the tea unsweetened and serve it with sugar substitute and simple syrup on the  side so my guests can choose.

2 large (family size) tea bags
8 cups filtered water
3/4 cup sugar

In a small pot, boil 2 cups water.  Remove from heat and add tea bags, cover and let steep for 10 minutes.  Pour tea, sugar and remaining water into a one gallon container. Stir until all sugar is dissolved.  Place in refrigerator until chilled. Serve over ice.
