Sweet Tea

This is perfect for summer or anytime.

I’ve used decaffeinated tea bags, but you can use regular tea bags if desired.

8 c. cold water
2 large tea bags 
1/4 - 1/3 c. prepared simple syrup 

Prepare simple syrup, set aside to let cool until ready to use.

Turn on the kitchen faucet to cold and let run for 30 seconds - 1 minute.

Fill kettle with cold water, place tea kettle and place on stove.

Turn stove burner on to high, bring water to a boil.

When water begins to boil, turn off stove, place tea bags in kettle.

Steep tea for a few minutes to desired strength.

Remove tea bags from kettle and let tea cool.

Fill a pitcher with ice. 

Pour cooled tea in the pitcher over ice. 

Place pitcher in refrigerator until ready to serve.

To serve: place ice in the bottom of 4 - 6 clean glasses.

Add desired amount of simple syrup and pour tea over ice.

Serves 4 - 6.
