Delicious Sweet Tea

3 ingredients

I've tried making tea using several different recipes and by using different methods (e.g., coffee makers, tea makers, etc.), but this is the best method I've found. I did not come up with this myself, and I'm sure lots of other people use a very similar method, but this is for people who just can't get the flavor they crave.Some explanations:(1) The reason you do not let the water boil for too long is that, the longer it boils, the more oxygen is removed. This makes for poor tasting tea.(2) Use a glass or glazed pitcher, because a plastic pitcher tends to impart an undesired flavor to the tea.(3) Your tea is only as good as the ingredients you use to make it. I recommend filtered or bottled water and Lipton or Luzianne bags.
