    Its Oh So Delicious

    I'm grew up in the south where I basically had a sweet tea IV put in. I love it. Nothing quenches your thirst like a ice cold glass of sweet tea. Recently I moved to the midwest and its been quite a shock. I ask for sweet tea, and they hand me a glass of unsweetened tea and a...

    How Did I Live Without It?

    In California (where I grew up), there is no such thing as sweet tea.  I'd never even heard of it until I moved.  Now, I wonder how I lived without it.  Well... I know how I lived without it - with Saccharin.  I can't stand trying to stir 10,000 sugar packets...

    Love You Grandma

    My grandmother was from Alabama.  Sweet tea will forever remind me of her.  From the time I was tiny, I can't remember a time when her refrigerator didn't have a freshly brewed jar (yes, glass jar) of tea.  Anywhere you go down South, there's sweet tea...

    A Spoonful of Sugar

    Helps the medicine go down and I'm taking lots of meds so a cup full of sugar is more like it. Truthfully, I just like sweets. At least I can control some aspect of sweetness in my life. There's nothing like an ice cold glass of extra sweet tea to escape just momentarily from the...

    I Don't Want It Any Other Way

    I've learned to NEVER try to buy sweet tea in the north, at least from the northern Virginia/Washington D.C. area and up. It's just a foreign concept up there. You can say "Sweet tea please", but they'll just give you unsweet. It's like the word "sweet" is just ignored or...

    Tea For Two?

    I like Ceylon tea, brewed in very hot water, just five minutes each cup steeping, poured out over mint leaves and lavender honey. It is a gorgeous pick me up!

    I love sweet tea so much that I'm probably drinking it while you're reading this. I even drink it in my sleep. I keep a cup with me almost everynight so that whenever I wake up, I can take a sip. This may have something to do with the fact that I viewed it as an adult drink when...

    No Lemon

    No lemon for me in my tea, but I do love sweet tea!  If it doesn't come already sweetened (which is rare in most parts of the country), unless it's really strong I tend to drink it without any sweetener in it.  If it's really strong I tend to add part of a packet of...

    "GRITS" and Sweet Tea

    Girls Raised In The South and sweet tea no more need to be said. Moving around with my husband while in the military I can say sweet tea is not a staple except in the south. Introducing southern sweet tea to people is a wonderful thing.

    Macdonalds now sells sweet tea and I am there every night to buy one. I am addicted to it. I drink it with milk in it and I could drink it forever. At night I walk my dog and he likes to go there so I run in and buy a sweet tea. I hope they keep selling it.
