You are correct, it was a little weak. I will cut back on the H2O.

Yep, that's the reason why they don't sell them. But, he don't need to. Great business plan. I live near his first store.

This thread got burried too far to respond on my phone.
I did get mine in, and made a gallon. I think the only way you can order it is in the 100 count of big bags, like we all got. I made it on the stove, like normal. Two quarts of water, brought to a boil, cut it off, drop in tea bag and let it soak for 15ish minutes. 1/2 cup of sugar for the gallon and it was pretty dang close to the mix I do at Buccee's.

Tina is scared to drink it because all the tea bags are just in that big plastic bag. She thinks it's infected with Covid ... I guess I've got 99 more gallons of tea to drink!

Default Royal Cup is the best!

Bill Miller's used Royal Cup as well. I've been making it at home for years. The key is not to get the water too hot. Turn the heat off when the bubbles start to release to the surface. Let it sit for a minute or two, add the tea bag and steep for 12 minutes.

If the water is too hot the tea will be bitter.

Great tip! I'm going to try that on my next pitcher.

Aerated water also improves the flavor. I put it in an empty milk jug and shake it up good before heating.
