Frosty Frog, hands down, has the best sweet tea besides my own! Theirs is perfect, not too sweet and syrupy, but not lacking sugar either. It takes 6 Lipton (yes, the brand is important) tea bags and 1 1/2 cups sugar per gallon to make the best. Letting the tea steep for 15 minutes is also critical to the recipe. If you want cheap...McDonald's tea is close... if you mix it with 2 parts sweet and 1 part unsweetened.
