Ah, yes, this is the 'accepted' way of making ice tea in the south.
Unfortunately, altho' I consider myself "southern" (having been here for
about 30 years), my tea is ALWAYS cloudy.  Thus, I make "sun" tea but will
now certainly try "moon" tea.  And, no, I don't drink it sweetened.  You
have to ask for unsweetened tea, however, in the south.
