When I came home from She Speaks and shared with my husband about their delicious sweet tea, well, he was thrilled to show me that Mcdonalds was selling sweet tea now too.
Definitely NOT what I drank in North Carolina!
My sweet tea friend Starr from Threshold Moments and North Carolina, just emailed me her special recipe. I thought I would share it with all of you who, like me, are not from the South, but just would love a cup of sweet tea.
Boil a small sauce pan full of water. Remove it from heat. Steep 4 family size tea bags in it for at least 15 minutes (I sometimes forget and leave mine all day...it does not hurt a thing!). Then pour it into a gallon pitcher over 2 cups of sugar (yep, I did say 2 cups!) Then, fill up the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water.
