4 family size tea bags (I use Lipton)
2 cups of sugar
In a small size saucepan over medium heat, bring the 4 tea bags to a boil. Simmer slowly for 1-2 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour 2 cups of sugar into a gallon size pitcher.
Using a slotted spoon, Pour water from tea over sugar; careful not to bust the tea bags or drop them into the pitcher. Run warm water over tea bags (inside pot) and drain again. Repeat this step 3 more times.
Stir warm tea into sugar until dissolved. (Your pitcher will be almost 1/2 full.) Then turn your cold water on and run strait into pitcher. Stirring constantly until almost full.
Let it stand for about 30 minutes before serving as to not melt the ice. Serve over a generous amount of ice. Enjoy!
