This is the secret Tx Sweet tea that has been in my family as long as I can remember.

Get some Luzianne tea bags the family sized ones Luzianne is the only tea for iced tea

Measure out *1 cup of sugar and 1/8 tsp baking soda( Baking soda removes any bitterness)
Bring to a low boil 24 oz water ( as soon as the water starts to ripple its hot enough)
Pour 1 cup of the water into the sugar/BS mix stir to dissolve
Put 3 teabags into the sugar mixture and pour the remaining 2 cups of hot water over them
Allow to steep until the tea Syrup is room temp remove the Bags giving them a good squeeze
Pour the tea syrup into a 1 gal container and fill it up with cold water.
* We like it with 1 cup if you like it Sweeter go in increments of 1/4 cup to get it where you like it.
