Easy Southern Sweet Tea

Bring 3 cups of water to boil. Add 4 family-size tea bags (my choice is Tetley tea). Boil water and tea bags for three minutes. Turn off the heat. Remove and discard the tea bags. Immediately add 1 1/2 cups sugar to the hot tea; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour the tea into a gallon-sized container and add enough cool water to fill up the container.
Hints: For a clear honey colored tea, remove the tea bags while the water is still hot. To avoid the sugar settling on the bottom of the pitcher, add the sugar while the water is hot. To avoid a bitter or acid taste, add a pinch of baking soda to the boiling water.
