Indiana Sweet Tea
1 gallon water (16 cups) divided
4 family size tea bags
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 c. sugar
Bring 1/2 gallon water to a boil. Remove from heat, stir in baking soda and steep 4 family size tea bags for 10-15 minutes. (The baking soda removes the tannins in the tea and makes it less bitter.) Remove tea bags. Stir in the sugar until dissolved. Pour remaining (cold) water into a 1 gallon pitcher, add the sweet tea mixture and serve over ice.
*Notes: I like to save my tea bags for another time, just steep them a little longer. Also I like to chill my sweet tea before I serve it so it doesn't water down with the ice too quickly.
