Homemade Sweet Tea
2 cups boiling water
6 tea bags
1 cup sugar
pinch of baking soda
cold water

Boil 2 cups of water in a pot, once boiling, remove from heat and add baking soda and stir. Add tea bags. Allow to steep about 10 minutes. Right away remove tea bags and stir in sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool. Then add to picture with ice and cold water until pitcher is full.

After making 1 time you can always adjust the amount of sugar up or down depending on your preference of sweetness. I like to make it a little extra sweet in the pitcher because later when I pour it over ice, the ice melts and calms down the sweetness some.
