Leslie's recipe for sweet iced tea:


8 Lipton tea bags

1/3 cup sugar




Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Add 4 tea bags each to 2 wide-mouth, quart-sized Mason jars. Fill both jars with water, cover with lids and steep for five minutes. Then divide the sugar between the two jars. Add desired
