Super Sweet Tea


  • 1 gallon spring or distilled water
  • 1 healthy pinch baking soda
  • 4 - 6 family size tea bags (I like Great Value Decaf)
  • 2 - 2 1/4 cups sugar


  1. In a 2-quart saucepan add 1 healthy pinch (about 1/8 teaspoon) of baking soda and fill pot to about 3/4 full and boil.
  2. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Let bags set for about an hour, dipping 4-5 times every 15 minutes or so.
  3. While waiting for tea to steep, in a 1-gallon pitcher, add the sugar and add roughly 1 quart of water to dissolve the sugar.
  4. When finished steeping, add tea to sugar water mixture and add remaining water; stir and chill.
