amy's notes for this recipe:
This is a sweet southern tea syrup . You add your water to the syrup and have ya some good ol sweet tea.. you can use more of less syrup depending on how strong you like it. And if you find it too sweet cut back on the sugar in the recipe.
Make it Your Way...

Bring Tea Bags to a Boil and let simmer 25 min pour over sugar and mix until dissolved.
Pour 1 and 3/4 cup of syrup into 2 quart container and add enough water to make 2 quarts of tea. Store syrup in fridge up to 2 weeks.

Oh man that brings back memories. My Papa's wife used to bring that out of the fridge and pour it in our glass of water. Was so good.

Can you substitute splenda in place of the regular sugar?

Went to the office today and they had made unsweet tea. YUKK. I took sugar and water, mixed well and put it in the microwave for 1 minute, Wallah! Sugar syrup for good sweet tea.(Actually I used 1 Splenda and a spoon of the syrup, just right.) The other ladies loved it.
