335 Tasting Notes
This is the go to tea to make southern sweet tea. Don’t you dare use Liptons! My mom and I would make a gallon on a hot day in the summer, and it would gone before night. I prefer brewing the tea longer, my mom sticks to 5 minutes.
Want a non-cloudy iced tea for storing? Keep it out to cool before sticking in the fridge, it’ll be crystal clear!
Also, per 3 family size tea bags, we add a leveled 1/4 tsp baking soda, too. It makes it alkaline.
I used to be a big fan of this tea. I first had it at the Seattle Needle 10 years ago, bottled. The bottled tea blends the tea with apple juice and orange juice and it was addicting. I don’t know if they changed the blend when I first started drinking it, but it tastes off for some reason. I prefer the bottled tea, the blend taste different!
I easily go through a box of this tea a week. My parents have been drinking this tea for the last 25 years, so it is in my genes to be also addicted to it. I always recommend it to people who are trying to get of drinking sugar drinks. It’s such a rich tea, I don’t even think I have ever drank it hot! It’s so good cold! I like a small simmer to the water, since I think boiling the water gives it an off flavor.
My favorite part of this tea is how sweet it is!
I had the hardest time picking between the herbal teas, but decided on LSL’s blend. It’s slightly thick on the tongue while still being mild. I love it iced, didn’t even try it hot. It’s the perfect iced tea for relaxing. Only a touch of mint. I want a perfume of it!
