Sweet Tea

Mother’s Day is tomorrow. So, wishing all you moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day.

All Southern Ladies can cook. Right? My Mom was a Southern Lady who could not cook and rarely attempted to cook anything.  Early on in my childhood, she became the sweet tea maker with my dad doing all the cooking.  She wasn’t bothered by her lack of cooking ability and laughed along with family and friends when they joked about it.

I believe this is how she made the tea.

Sweet Tea

2 tablespoons Lipton Loose Tea
1 quart boiling water

Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Brew three to five minutes, then strain. Sweeten with sugar or honey to taste. Serve over ice cubes.
