Sweet Tea

There's nothing like a refreshing glass of sweet tea on a hot day! Mmmm. I make a batch about 2x's a week. For all you tea lovers out there here's the recipe I swear by. 

Bring 5 cups of water to a boil. 
Add 1 cup of white sugar(when wanting a less sweet batch, I only add 3/4 cups). Give a little stir, allowing the sugar to dissolve completely. 
Remove from heat and add 4 tea bags(I use black tea). 
Let steep for a few minutes-the longer you steep, the stronger it will be. 
After steeping, remove tea bags. At this point I add a couple cups of water to dilute it a bit, while at the same time cooling it down quicker.
Pour over some ice with some lemon, sit back and enjoy!
