Southern Sweet Tea

Southern Sweet Tea Recipe
Danielle Atkins
  • Yield: 10 servings


2quarts bottled spring water or filtered water
1/4cup loose black tea leaves or 8 standard tea bags
1/3cup to 2/3 c sugar
2 lemons, thinly sliced
8 sprigs mint


  1. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a teakettle. Put tea leaves in a deep, heatproof bowl or large teapot. As soon as the water begins to boil, pour over tea leaves, stir, and let stand 4 minutes. It will be very strong.
  2. Pour liquid through a fine wire-mesh sieve or coffee filter into a pitcher. Stir sugar into the tea. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add remaining quart of water and stir. Cool completely and serve over ice with lemon and mint. Note: Sweetened tea is more perishable than unsweetened. Store it well sealed in a glass (not plastic) container in the refrigerator.
