When I was in Michigan I got to spend some time with my cousin, Kristen. While I was at her house she offered me some homemade sweet tea. Michigan was having a sticky heat wave so I couldn't pass up the refreshing drink. When I got back to California, I had to ask Kristen for the recipe, because it was damn good. So damn good that I knew I had to share it with you!
12 tea bags (I used Lipton's)
4 cups hot water
12 cups cool water
1 1/2- 2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
(I don't suggest having limes with your iced tea....I was just out of lemons!)
If you like sweet tea, you need to try this. I was sipping it as I was trying to take these photos and had to keep refilling my little mason jar. It's that good. Let me know if you try it! xo JA
