Epic Fail----recipe added

Since we live in the South, pretty much all we drink is sweet tea. By the gallon. This morning we ran out before I had more brewed and ready to make, so to save time I decided to use the coffee maker instead of boiling water and letting the bags steep for a while. We have a Bunn coffee maker so it's always ready to go. I added the water and put the tea bags in the carafe and viola! Tea in two minutes. I made the tea like always, added the brewed tea and a cup of sugar and finished filling the pitcher with water. Well, my son comes to me a little while ago and asked if I wouldn't use the coffee pot again because the tea tasted like black coffee. I checked and I had forgotten to empty the filter basket after making coffee this morning. So there went a whole gallon of tea down the drain. I am now boiling the water to make a fresh gallon. So, have you ever done anything like that?



The way I normally make tea is to fill a 2qt pot with water and add 10 tea bags. Put it on to boil and set my timer for 15 min( I forget I'm making it a lot).lol I turn it off when the timer goes goes off and let it sit for about 10 minutes. I then add a cup of sugar to a gallon pitcher, pour in the brewed tea(minus the bags,of course) and then fill the pitcher with water. Store in the fridge and serve over ice.

Today actually! I always put coffee grounds and water in the coffee pot at night so it's ready to go when we wake up, but last night I forgot to put in the grounds +_+ so we ended up with a nice pot of hot water this morning!

 lmao, I have started the pot without putting the pot back in,  water all over the counter, I now have fancy one that wont brew without the pot. Is there a trick to making really good sweet tea? My daughter loves it but I can't get it right.

Omg,the best thing since sliced bread! It's a definitely a southern thing. It's tea with at least a cup or more of sugar
