Hey, y'all! Welcome to the Sweet South Blog!
Pull up a rocking chair and have a glass of my Famous Sweet Iced Tea (recipe below) and stay a while. Kick your shoes off if you like, and explore the site's writer and reader sections by clicking on the tabs. And of course, go see what fun news I have to share on my blog.
I love to chat, so leave a comment and we'll discuss stories of laughter, love, and redemption!
Natalie's Famous Sweet Iced Tea
(makes 1 gallon)
4 family size tea bags
1 & 1/2 cups sugar (you can always add more if you like it sweeter!)
3 cups ice
Boil 3 cups of water in a teapot or saucepan. Drop in tea bags and cover, then turn off heat. Steep 4 minutes. Pour ice over tea bags and stir until melted. Dump sugar in a gallon pitcher. Pour steeped tea over sugar and stir until dissolved. Rinse tea bags in teapot and squeeze out remaining tea before discarding (this gives the tea a good snap!), then empty the teapot into the pitcher. Fill pitcher the rest of the way with water and stir. Pour up a glass with fresh ice and enjoy!
*Not everyone enjoys lemon-flavored tea, so I use wedges as a garnish by cutting into the middle and propping on the side of the glass.
