Sweet Tea

Per Esther's request

Open 4 bags of family size Lipton tea bags, place in 2 qt sauce pot and cover about 3/4 of the way with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer (2 or 3 if you have numbers on your burners). Let simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Grab a gallon container and add 2 cups of sugar. Then this is the key - dump all of the water out of your sauce pot into your container and then take a spoon and mash the rest of the juice out of your tea bags without them breaking. I tend to use a fine mesh strainer and just run the water and tea through there and then using a spoon "mash" my tea bags. Then add water to fill the container, stir and put in the fridge to cool.
