Sweet tea recipes

Seems that none of yall have posted about your sweet tea recipes. If there's a secret ingredient you can't disclose then I understand.
Here's mine:
add 4 cups of water w/1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and bring to boil
turn off stove and add 12 Lipton tea bags, cover and let sit about 15 minutes
take out tea bags (I usually squeeze the tea bags dry. stronger the better)
add 1 1/2 cup of sugar and stir till its dissolved
add 12 more cups of cold water
Now let's hear how yall do it

My recipe goes like this:
1: Drive to the store. 2: Buy sweet tea. 3: Drive back home. 4: Pour in glass, drink and enjoy.

Seriously though, thanks for posting this because I've been wondering about some good homemade sweet tea concoctions. A guy I used to work with on the boat made some good tea, but I can't remember his recipe. Whats the baking soda for?

Is it just me, or does it seem like all Dodge drivers are A$$holes?

We just boil water, put in a good bit of bags, I like it to set cause I like it really strong, and usually 2 cups of sugar for a gallon of water.

lol i had a good chuckle at that. that's how i did it too until i realized that its WAY cheaper to make than buy. But the baking soda makes it really smooth. I could be off my rocker but I swear it makes a difference. But make sure u put the baking soda in before you start to boil the water or else the tea will come out tasting like horse manure. Can't explain that one either but it happened on my last batch. It was so bad i had to dump the rest out and make a new batch.
