Ingredients

  • 7 black tea bags
  • 8 cups of filtered water
  • 1 cup Belgian Pearl Sugar
  • plenty of ice
  • 1 lemon (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot and stir in sugar pearls.  Turn down the heat to gently melt the sugar.
  2. Once sugar has melted, turn off heat and place tea bags in the pot.  Allow tea bags to steep for 15 – 20 minutes (less time if you prefer a lighter tea, longer if you prefer a deeper brewed flavor). Remove the tea bags and allow the sweet tea to cool down.
  3. After the sweet tea has cooled to a manageable temperature, pour into a large pitcher and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  4. Pour over a tall glass of ice. Squeeze lemon juice into your glass, stir and add a slice of lemon for garnish. Cheers!

Serving ideas: For a fruity twist, add a dash of cherry syrup or a handful of sweet berries. Pour in a little lemonade to create your very own Arnold Palmer. Muddle some mint or basil for a delicious and subtle herb flavor. Give it a splash of your favorite tipple for an extra kick. Bottoms up!
