I love to make a large pitcher of this Southern Strawberry Sweet Iced Tea refreshing ice tea on a warm day. It is really simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing. I like to add a mint and strawberry garnish which adds a little extra something to the recipe in my opinion!

Start by bringing water to a boil in a small pot. Remove the pot from the heat and add the tea bags. As the tea steeps, puree and strain strawberries to get juice. Combine the tea with strawberry juice and sugar. Refrigerate until ice cold and serve over ice with mint and fresh or frozen strawberries (I like to use frozen strawberries as ice cubes).
