1) Fill a large sauce pan with water and place it on the stove.
2) Suspend the tea bags in the water by their strings. Making sure to wrap the strings around and tape them to the pan's handle so that the strings won't come in contact with the burner. This keeps your tea bags from rolling around in the pan and breaking open; which will leave undesirable tea grounds in your tea.
3) Turn the burner on medium-high heat (do not let it get to a rolling boil or the strings may break) for 20-30 minutes for the true strength of Restaurant Style Sweet Tea.
4) Remove the sauce pan from heat and toss out the tea bags. Pour the hot tea mixture into your gallon jug with the sugar and stir it to dissolve the sugar fully. Fill the rest of the jug with cold water and refrigerate. It'll be ready to serve in about an hour.
Having the tea bags in the pan as the water heats up will bring out the full flavor of the tea that steeping the bags in the hot water after it's been heated just doesn't do.
