2 quarts water
3 Lipton tea bags (standard size)
1 cup granulated sugar

In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat.

As soon as the water hits a rolling boil, remove it from the heat, add the tea bags, and cover the saucepan.

Let it steep for exactly 1 hour, covered and undisturbed and then remove the tea bags.

Add 1 cup of sugar to a 2-quart pitcher, then add the brewed tea.

Stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour the tea into a glass filled with ice to serve.
