The New Southern Style Sweet Tea

The New Southern Style Sweet Tea

If you’ve ever lived in the South, you know all about Southern style sweet tea! I grew up in New York, where sweet tea is just regular-old tea with a few sugar packets on the side. When I moved to Tennessee, I was in for a rude awakening. I got a job at a local restaurant, and I couldn’t believe we had to brew two types of tea! “Honey, sweet tea isn’t just unsweetened tea with sugar added,” my boss told me. I did what I was told and brewed the two different teas, and guess what: Southern style sweet tea was so much more delicious than the stuff I grew up with!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 gallon (8 cups) chilled water
  • 6 (small) green tea bags
  • 1/2 cup honey, optional maple syrup
