Freebie Friday - Iced Tea

Growing up in Michigan we would drink hot tea during the winter and sun tea (no sugar added) in the summer time.  I now live in the deep south, meaning Iced Tea is always sweet and is available all year round.  I still remember the first time I ordered tea in the south, it came out and I put sugar in it, my southern friends looked at me very funny.  I took one sip and spit it out, saying this is way too sweet.  My southern friends all laughed at me because I added sugar to my already, very sweet tea.

Making sweet tea is an art form, not everyone can master this art (trust me).  The best sweet tea I have ever had was at the hotel I worked at we had one lady, Ms. Barbara who made the best sweet tea.  I was just right not too sweet not too bitter.  I asked her what her secret is, she always laughed and said "some people can make it and some people can't, I can."

I do make sweet tea and it is good but not as good as Ms. Barbara's Sweet Tea.  I hope everyone has a great first day of summer and sit back, relax and enjoy a nice tall glass of sweet tea.
