Southern Sweet Tea

Southern sweet tea is a tradition throughout the South, but you don’t have to go to the drive-thru to enjoy it! Here’s how to make your own Southern sweet tea at home—with a secret ingredient to make it smooth and delicious.

Is there anything more refreshing than a tall glass of iced tea on a hot day? While any variety of iced tea will hit the spot when you’re feeling parched, there’s definitely something special about Southern sweet tea.
Southern sweet tea is, well, sweet. But it also has a smoother, less bitter flavour than other varieties. You might think the only way to enjoy it is by ordering it at a restaurant or buying a jug at the grocery store, but you can easily make sweet tea at home.

The secret to making perfect Southern sweet tea isn’t as elusive as you may think. With a few simple ingredients and some patience, you can have a pitcher of delicious sweet tea ready to enjoy in no time.

  • 4 family sized bags black tea
  • 1 gallon water
  • 1-2 cups sugar to taste, 200-400 grams
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
