Nothing beats a tall cool glass of sweet ice tea on warm summers day. Anyone agree with me?
I use Luzianne and Community brand tea bags. There are a few places out there that sell sweet ice tea that are better than ANYTHING I can make. My favorite is SONNY'S BBQ. McDonald's makes some good sweet ice tea as well.

Luzianne here too. Good stuff!! How is the Community brand vs the Luzianne?

Whenever I order tea at restaurants,I always get unsweet. Seems they always serve you pure sugar water. WAY too sweet for my tastes. Luby's imo has the best iced tea anywhere! I LOVE that stuff!! And it's always served proper,in real *glass" glasses. Iced tea HAS to be drank from glass containers only.

I agree. I prefer lime in place of lemon. Learned this trick at Fire House Subs..

Never liked sweet tea. Too sweet and my blood sugar would lose it. I'll take the boring dull tasteless sun tea though. I like earl Grey over Lipton.

has to be home made sun tea for me. anything commercially available has a weird funky taste to my tongue...
8 standard tea bags to a gallon of water, park it in the Sun for 3hours. no more, no less.

the past couple summers, i'm actually using good imported English tea, Yorkshire Tea to be exact. it makes fabulous Sun Tea.
for my self, it doesn't taste right without Sweet 'n Low... just the way i was raised...

and whomever said they prefer earl grey...that ain't real tea.(personally I can't stand the smell of Bergamot)

It's BO time! Big old sweet tea and bring on the Cajun Filet biscuit and an order of season fries. It's great to be from NC. LOL.

Sweet ice tea is a very good alternative to soda. The tea has antioxidants and doesn't cost much to make.

I like iced tea if it isn't too sweet. On a hot day though I'll drink anything cold.

I drink tea for breakfast, wife makes Kombucha. So she buys bulk loose long leaf ASSAM Tippy Golden FOP tea from Frontier

After going no tea bag you can sure taste the "BAG" when you go back.

NO Tea Bags!

Just pour boiling water into a big jar over the loose tea leaves ( 1/2 cup) and let it steep for a long time then refrigerate.

You filter out the leaves by pouring it through a tea strainer.

Me, BC, of blood sugar issues, I just like it very lightly sweetened,
