    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 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...

    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...

    Hi, I'm Your Server...what Can I Get You Guys To Drink Today?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    "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.

    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...
