Southern Sweet Tea

     Sweet Tea is one of my favorite Spring-time beverage choices. Today I’m sharing a family favorite!  I love this recipe for it’s ease, money & time saving qualities; definitely my go-to choice!

Did you know that Arm & Hammer baking soda, just a pinch, will give your tea a smooth taste?  Be careful; too much will produce a ‘chalky’ aftertaste.

Would love to hear how it works for you!

Enjoy!  ~Benita


1 pinch Arm & Hammer baking soda

2 cups boiling water

6 tea bags

3/4-1 cup white sugar (if I have it, I use Sugar In The Raw as an alternative)

6 cups cool water


1.  Sprinkle a pinch of baking soda into a 64-ounce, heat-proof, glass pitcher.  Pour in boiling water and add tea bags.  Cover and allow to steep for 10minutes.

2.  Remove tea bags, and discard; stir in sugar until dissolved.  Pour in cool water, then refrigerate until cold.
