Living in Panama means living in the heat, which is why in my house we are always sipping on something nice and cold. From smoothies to lemonade to good ol' tang and as of now, some sweet tea. I know many of you have your own fabulous recipes but here is a nice quick basic one for those of you whom might not have ever made your own, Sweet Tea! Need: Pinch of baking soda 2 cups of boiling water 6 tea bags (you can do flavored tea bags if desired) 6 cups cool water 1 cup to 1/2 cups white sugar ( according to your desired sweetness)
To Make: 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 15 minutes.
2.Remove tea bags, and discard; stir in sugar until dissolved. Pour in cool water, then refrigerate until cold.
