Hey ya'll! So I'd say if you're a true-bred southerner you can't get enough of your sweet tea. I'm sure it's pretty obvious sweet tea is at the top of my favorite drinks list since I'm doing a whole blog post on it. But can you really blame me? (Didn't think so). Fun fact: In 2003, a Georgia state representative tried to pass a house bill requiring all restaurants to serve sweet tea. The representative insists it was an April Fools' Day joke but admits he wouldn't have minded it becoming law. Anyway, today I'm going to be sharing with you my recipe for sweet tea; I found the original recipe on Pinterest here, but I've made some small changes to my taste. Give it a try ♥

8 cups of water (divided)
2 family sized tea bags, or 4 regular sized
2/3 a cup of sugar

1. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a pot
2. Remove from heat, add tea bags and let steep covered for 10-15 minutes
3. After done steeping, squeeze out any extra flavour and remove from the tea
4. Add sugar and stir to dissolve (Important: tea must still be warm or sugar will not properly dissolve)
5. Add remaining 4 cups of water and stir
