For a gallon of tea, I use 2 cups of sugar stirred into the pot of heating water until it's a syrup. Once it boils, I put 4 family sized bags of Luzianne tea into it, turn off the heat and cover for an hour or so. Then I funnel it into a gallon jug and top with water. Perfect for me :)

* baking soda cuts the acid/tannins leaving a clean tea flavour

Put the 6 tea bags into a 1 quart mason jar and the sugar and baking soda into a pint jar
Bring 3 cups of water just to a boil pour 2 cups over the tea and 1 up over the sugar stir until the water turns clear
Steep the tea until the it is around room temp.
Remove the tea bags and squeeze them out into the mason jar. add the sugar syrup to the tea. pour the tea syrup into a 1 gal pitcher and fill with ice water. Enjoy!
Thanks everyone for all the great recipes and tips. For today, I decided on trying Bludawg's recipe. Turned out great! Only thing I may do next time is cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup. It's pretty farken Good! Thanks!

Gave the tea a try.
1 gal water
4 fam size tea bags (luzianne)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup sugar in the raw
Juice if 1 lemon
1/8 tsp baking soda

Boiled 1/2 gal water. Removed from heat and added the tea bags. Steeped for 8 minutes. Poured the hot water into a pitcher and added the sugar and baking soda. Then added the cool water. Stirred and added the lemon.
It was great.

I used to go to this BBQ joint about 25 years ago in Eastern NC , great tea . Always brought a pitcher out with the meal and left it on the table . Good hushpuppies too... BBQ restaurants are a dying breed...

We have a Mr Coffee 3 qt Iced Tea Maker that the wife actually had BEFORE we got married 15 years ago. Fill it up with water, fill the pitcher up with ice, put 2 family sized tea bags (we use Lipton or Luzzianne decaf) in the "steep" container, put about 3/4 C sugar in the ice, then push the little button. 10 minutes later.....fresh brewed tea!

We just have to stir up the pitcher until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Good stuff!

If you like a little something, something to your tea! Try adding a little juice of your favorite flavor Cranapple, cranberry juice coctail, pineapple or peach, Then adding a complimentary flavor of rum like coconut or pineapple! It will really put the relaxed in a relaxing saturday afternoon!

I used Luzianne for the longest time and then bought a box of the Red Rose tea. I get it at Wally World for about $1.50 a box. ( and it comes with a little figurine ).

~Fill a 3 Qt pan about 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil.
~Add 13 tea bags. ( they are the small ones. ) I always twist them and tie them together so that I dont have to fish them out.
~ Steep for 15 minutes
~ Add sugar. I use about 1.75 Cups & a healthy pinch of baking soda. Stir.
~ Pour in gallon container, add cold water to fill. Give a couple shakes.

I also heard somewhere that a glass container will react with the tea differently than a plastic container.. supposed to use glass..... Im cheap and use plastic.
