Making Southern Sweet Tea at Your Apartment in Mount Dora, FL
One cool, refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot day is sweet tea. Sweet tea is a form of iced tea that is typically consumed in the Southeastern United States. It is made by brewing bags of black tea in hot water and adding sugar, before setting it in a refrigerator to cool. And, while it’s very easy to pick up a jug of this delicious beverage at any grocery store, it’s also very easy to make at home.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make Southern sweet tea at your apartment in Mount Dora, Florida:
• 1 pinch baking soda
• 2 cups boiling water
• 6 black tea bags
• ¾ cup white sugar
• 6 cups cool water
To begin, sprinkle a pinch of baking soda into a 64-ounce, heat-proof glass pitcher. Then, pour in the boiling water and add the tea bags. Cover the pitcher and let the tea bags steep for at least 15 minutes. Once the tea bags have had their chance to steep, remove and discard them, and then stir in the sugar until it has dissolved. Lastly, pour in the cool water and refrigerate.
Once the sweet tea has cooled, pour a serving into a glass with ice and top with a slice of lemon. Enjoy the refreshing drink on your patio or in the kitchen of your Veranda apartment.
