I have seen Paula Deen make iced tea. She states make your tea like you usually do a bag for each cup or you can make sun tea (still a bag for each cup) If you want it sweetened (since sugar doesn't dissolve in cold water) make a simple syrup. Equal parts sugar and water. Bring it to a boil but do keep an eye on it. Let it cool and store in the refrigerator for future use. I don't like sweet tea but if I know I'm having company, I have the simple syrup on hand. I also have raspberry and lemons and mint julep for those who want something different. Sorry, I don't have any diet sweeteners on my shelves. I have used a little Bailey's in my tea on the rock's. Yummmm!
