Southern Sweet Tea

I love sweet tea! The inspiration for this poem is my tea recipe. To make Southern Sweet Tea: Place four family-size tea bags into a pot/bowl of very hot water and allow it to steep for at least 30 minutes (do NOT boil). Transfer the tea to a tea jug (at the sink) and stir in 1 cup (8oz) of sugar. Add enough water to fill the jug to the top. Let the tea sit in the fridge overnight for best results! You can add up to 1/4 cup more of the sugar, if you like your tea even sweeter. Note: Sweet tea gets sweeter after it has been in the refrigerator; it will be sweeter tomorrow, than it is today. Enjoy!
