This southern classic is simple and delicious. To make it, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Turn off the heat and add 4 tea bags (black tea is traditional, but you can use green or herbal tea as well) and 1 cup of sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour the tea over a pitcher filled with ice and enjoy!
Peach Iced Tea:

For a sweet and fruity twist on classic iced tea, try adding some fresh peaches. To make it, brew 4 cups of tea as you would for classic sweet tea and let it cool to room temperature. While the tea is cooling, puree 2 peaches and strain the puree to remove any chunks. Once the tea is cooled, mix in the peach puree, pour over a pitcher filled with ice, and enjoy!
