Servings: 1 gallon
Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 quart water
4   family size Luzzianne Tea bags
2 cup sugar
1   bunch mint
1   lemon, slices for garnish

Directions

In a large pot bring the water to a boil.  Remove pot from heat, add the tea bags, cover with a lid, and allow tea to steep in water for 20 minutes.  Take a 1 gallon jug and pour the sugar into the jug and cover with some hot tap water.  Stir the sugar around to dissolve while the tea is steeping.  Once the tea has steeped, remove the lid and the tea bags.  Pour the tea into the jug with the sugar, stir, and place the tea bags back into the jug and run them under hot tap water to release any additional flavors.  Stir the tea well making sure the sugar dissolves.  Fill the jug with cold water to yield 1 gallon.

To serve, pour each glass of tea and garnish with a slice of lemon and mint leaves.

Paula, My mother has been an fan of yours for years. In fact people often say, "Did that receipe come from your sister, Paula". She justs smiles and replies, "Sure did". I took my Mother and sister in Law on your tour a few years ago which was the highlight of our travels. She collects every book and article she can find with your stories and receipes. We wanted you to know that we appreciate you being true and honest and stand behind you. You must not let these trouble times get you down. God will take care of you. God Bless Kim Taylor
