This is a little something I learned while I lived down in the south. I don't normally enjoy iced tea, but this is fabulous and so refreshing on a hot day.
Bring 3-4 cups of water to a boil. Add a pinch of baking soda to the water and add 3 family sized tea bags. Remove from heat and cover. Allow to sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Pour into gallon pitcher and add sugar. Then fill with cold water. Refrigerate. *the soda takes out the bitterness and darkens the tea....this small amount doesnt change the taste. Enjoy!!
