    Love sweet tea I grew up in florida and this is just how we have always made it in my fam. If you let my sisters make it they put more sugar in it lol I make it like yours. And don't 4get you have to have it poured overtons of ice and sit right on the porch at sunset best way to really enjoy it. - 5/26/10

    Very Good
    I LOVE sweet iced tea. I make mine very simular to yours except I don't boil the tea. I've noticed if I don't boil the tea then it doesn't get that bitter taste at the end of the sip. - 10/25/09
