Southern Living and Sweet Tea

The May 2011 issue of Southern Living® is infused with sweet tea recipes, and recipes using sweet tea.
A Sweet Tea Icebox Tart  and a pitcher of Sweet Tea is featured on the front cover. 
The lovely article contains recipes and information on "23 New Ways to Enjoy Tea From Platter to Pitcher."





My family's favorite recipe for sweet tea is the one I made for the baby shower on Sunday.


Linda's Citrus Tea Punch



7 regular-sized tea bags or scoops of loose leaf tea


4 cups boiling water


1 1/2 c. sugar


1 (6 oz) can frozen orange juice concentrate


1 (6 oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate


10 c. water


Pour boiling water over tea bags in a glass container (I use a Pyrex 8 c. measuring cup)


Cover and steep 5 minutes; remove tea bags


Add sugar and stir until dissolved.


Pour into a one gallon container and add other ingredients (makes 1 gallon)


Refrigerate and serve over ice
