Homemade Iced Tea

I used to buy iced tea mix but have lately taken to mixing up homemade tea. For a gallon container of tea, bring a gallon of cold water to the almost-boiling point and then turn off. Add 6 decaf tea bags (or regular) and allow to soak for 20 minutes. Squeeze and remove the bags. Add sweetener (I use 2 tabl. of Sun Crystals) while still warm so it dissolves. Allow to sit and cool then pour in a gallon-sized pitcher and refrigerate.

I enjoy homemade iced tea as well. I make it in quart jars during the summer, adding fresh mint and ice. Then I pack it up in a cooler to send with my husband for work on a hot day.
