I can't find the family size tea bags and so used the personal ones. I must have used too many because it was on the stronger side. Just added a little more water.

Ok Im going to sound like an idiot but what kind of tea bags do you use? lol

I use Lipton brand regular size tea bags instead of family size. I use 5 bags for a gallon and 1- 1 1/3 cups sugar. I recommend if you have never made it to make it once and then u can adjust to your taste.

Best. Sweet. Tea. Ever. Used Luzianne family sized tea bags and made it spot on according to the directions. I don't like my sweet tea sickeningly sweet so this was PERFECT.

Classic Sweet Tea is all about simplicity, this is accomplished with this particular recipe... very easy and to the point. I blend up and use my own Handcrafted Loose Leaf black tea and only steep for 5 minutes and no longer.
