  25. When it's hot, humid and sticky in Illinois,mi love a big glass of sweet tea, brewed the way my aunts taught me. You put tea bags in boiling water in a pot, take it off the heat and let it sit. Take out the teabags after 5 minutes and put in half a cup of sugar. Pour over ice in a pitcher, adding a little water if it's too dark. Pour over ice in a glass and enjoy!
