beginning with my mom-mom, this is the way my family has always made iced tea. it is always hard to keep in the fridge it goes so fast. i no longer enjoy a beverage this sweet, but that does not stop my kids from loving it. If you don't have much of a sweet tooth like me cut back on some of the sugar. It's also often claimed as a hangover cure - you'll have to be the judge of that yourself... :o)

"I made Sweet Iced Tea today as it was a really hot day.
I replaced the water added last with soda water and it tasted amazing. I also used English Breakfast Tea and lemons from my "Bush Lemon " tree. It tasted just like the fizzy bottled ones you can purchase. My family loved it."
