Sucking down the sweet tea

Even though we've only had a hint of summer here in Ohio, I already can't keep sweet tea in the fridge for more than a couple of days at a time. Because I don't want to run to the store three times a week just to buy sweet tea, I'm thinking of making it at home and who better to consult than Paula Deen?

Recipe from Paula Deen's website.

What you need:
3 quarts of cold water
4 pitcher-size cold brew tea bags
Sugar mixture (see below)
Lemon slices (optional, for garnish)

For sugar mixture:
1 cup of water
3/4 cup of sugar

How you make it:
- Bring water to a boil.
- Remove water from heat, pour into a pitcher and allow the tea bags to steep for about 5 minutes.
- Mix the sugar mixture into the tea and mix well.
- Add lemon slices to the glasses if you'd like

So simple! I can't wait to try it.
