Chilly had this blue pitcher in his apartment for a long time
when he was still a bachelor. And now, after almost 22 years,
of marriage it is STILL our ice tea pitcher. (They don’t make’um
like they used to. Ha!)
Friends, old & new, soon learn that the blue pitcher in the frig
is & will always be Iced Tea. And they seem to love it. Ask for it.
and act almost getty when it’s offered.. well, at least the guys do,
but it’s usually right after they’ve helped with yard work or something. 🙂
It’s cheap. Easy. And we drink a gallon or more daily in the warm months.
Here’s how I make “Swaat Tay!”
Get a ONE gallon pitcher (plastic is safest)
Put in 10-12 regular ‘ol black tea bags
Add a couple cups of boiling water to to tea bags
Let it steep for 15 min or MORE! (I usually forget about it & it
ends up steeping for a hour or so… hmm, maybe that’s why we like it so much!)
Remove tea bags.
Add ONE cup of Splenda (or the wonderful & cheaper substitutes)
Now fill the pitcher all the way full (gallon total)
Serve with lots of ice.
(Keep it in the frig)
