Sweet Tea

Post by blevsy » Sat Apr 21, 2012 5:25 pm

I know you've said that you're partial to the Southern US, so, since it's the classic southern beverage, I was wondering if you've ever tried sweet tea.
Dumb question, I know, but I was making tea and was suddenly stricken with the urge to know if English people would enjoy it.

Is that just a regular brew but with two sugars?

Kind of, except it's served cold with ice in it. I was never a fan in particular, prefer the english breakfast tea.

Though something that is decent that we make down here is a hole in one, sweet tea, a bit of honey and a shot of black label scotch.

it's more like brown sugar water over ice. Very very very sweet. Tastes more like sugar than anything. I've been in the south for 14 years and still can't stand it.

My grandmother used to say the tea wasn't sweet enough until the spoon stood up by itself. It's funny, we had sweet tea with every meal when I was growing up. My grandmother insisted I drink a glass with each meal because it was "good for my kidneys". I rarely think about people not drinking it or even having heard of it because it's pretty much a staple around here (Texas) and where I grew up (Louisiana) If it's done "right" by my grandmother's thinking I can easily see how it would be overwhelming LOL

I wonder what is that sweet tea you are referring to. :? Is that literally called sweet tea because there are lots of sugar added? Hmm, but there is a tea I like. It's actually the sweetest tea I've ever tasted. I think it's called hibiscus tea that's made from dried hibiscus. Has anyone tried that?

I grew up in NJ and the way people made sweet tea was to put tea in a glass pot and leave it in the summer sun in order to steep and from what I've been told, it got sweet without any sugar from the sun.

Here in Florida, every restaurant will serve both iced tea (just tea cold over ice- no sugar added) and sweet tea, which includes lots of sugar.-

We drink PG Tips tea, hot with 1% milk every morning- its liquid gold. :wink:

Not really a fan of it though I have tried it a couple of times and it goes just right. Like most, I still prefer the usual English breakfast tea. I guess that they go too sweet that makes it not a go-to type of drink but at least that would go really well with what you have cooking, I suppose.

Makes me want to try it again just to see how it would suit me now.
