What's your Opinion?

Sweet Tea is a dinner table staple at my house. There has been more than one time when I've forgotten to put it on, or we've been out of the main ingredients (sugar or tea bags), and the boys have been very disappointed! There is something about a cold glass of Sweet Tea to go with your meal that makes it extra special.
Isn't this a neat tin??? I have no idea where my Mom got it, but there is a possibility that it came from her Grandmother. She seemed to pass "neat stuff" on to my Mom. We store out "Family Sized Tea Bags" in it as it makes the cupboard look neater and cheerier!!
We use 4 Tetley Family sized Tea bags along with adding 2 "flavor teas". Our favorite flavor at the moment is Lipton's Green Tea that has Orange, Passion fruit, and Jasmine in it. Ohhhhhhhhh, is it ever good.

First off we put a cup of sugar (ok, add a little more!!) in a gallon container. Then add water, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Then add your 4 tea bags and your 2 flavor bags (if desired). Put the lid on and place in the refrigerator. If you start around 9:00 or 10:00 in the morning it will be ready to serve come dinner time!!! Steeping the tea like this eliminates the caffeine that can keep children and adults up! Oh, don't forget to serve it with ice!!
