Danny's Sweet Tea


If you follow me, you know that my son Danny just got out of the marines, if this is your first time here, you know now.  Anyway, Danny was stationed at Camp LeJuene in Jacksonville, North Carolina for four years.  While living in the south he acquired an affinity for Sweet Tea, and out of necessity he learned how to make it himself.  So here goes, I am presenting you with Danny's recipe for Sweet Tea.


Danny's Sweet Tea


Ingredients:


3 Lipton Tea Bags
3 cups Sugar
1 gallon water

Directions:

Boil 4 cups of the 1 gallon of water with 3 lipton tea bags for 15 minutes.  Remove from heat.



Take tea bags out of the pan, and add 3 cups of sugar and stir until dissolved.  Add 2 cups of cold water from the 1 gallon of water to the tea/sugar mixture.



Then pour the sweet tea into a 1 gallon container and add the rest of the water.

Refrigerate and serve over ice.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe.  Let me know what you think and your recipes for sweet tea.  I love hearing from all of you.

Enjoy!!!

    1. Hey Christine,
      I hope that you like the recipe. Someone wrote me that it is too much sugar, but that is the way Danny makes it. I think it tastes good. Sweet, but really good. Let me know what you think. I am looking for feedback.
