Yield: Yields about 2 quarts.
I like to use orange pekoe tea and spring, filtered, or distilled water for this straightforward brew. If you like your iced tea southern style and quite sweet, add 1-1/2-cups granulated sugar.

Love this basic recipe. Not squeezing the tea bags makes a big difference in the result. I have always loved the great unsweetened tea that you get in the southern states and this is it.
