Sweet Tea is a very simple recipe that was invented in South Carolina and Georgia. The recipe is very simple: make tea and put the sugar in while it's hot, then cool and ice it. Maybe some mint or a bit of lemon. Now a days it is very popular among college and university students becuase it is cheap to make and will keep you awake for hours.

Steps
1 - Boil the water. You could use a coffe pot if you like the taste of burnt coffee.

2 - Then turn off the heat and add the bags of tea.

3 - Wait for them to steep. Ten minutes or so would be good to get the full flavour.

4 - Next add the sugar. You don't really have to bother messuring out any amount but remember that it'll taste sweeter when it's hot than it will after it's chilled and iced.

5 - At this stage you can also add the honey and mint.

6 - Now it is time to store and chill your tea.

7 - A big plastic pitcher isn't good for storing tea unless you plan to use it for a picnic. The best way is to use glass jars. Decant the tea off into the jars, but leave enough room to dilute it a little if you've brewed your tea strong; add water to get it just right. Leave the mint leaves in the jar, so that the tea gets more mint flavor over time. Also, since the tea will be cooling, don't screw the lids on too tight. That makes it harder to get at the tea later.You can pour the warm tea straight over ice and drink it right away, preferably stretched out somewhere comfortable and shady. Or you can set the jars in the fridge to chill and have a tasty glass.when its ready.

Tips
If you keep the honey in the fridge, it doesn't crystallize, doesn't attract ants, and has a really neat caramel-taffy texture.

If your in college something to try is make super concentrated tea and add more sugar and then pour it into a military booze flask and take sips during boring lectures.
