Sweet Iced Tea

Sweet Iced Tea is a staple in the American South. Gallons of it are drunk daily from Kentucky to Texas to Arizona. Brewed sweet tea is much better than instant sweet tea. When you go to a restaurant or diner in the USA, it is totally acceptable to ask whether the iced tea is brewed or instant. If instant, go with a Coke.

Iced Tea with Twinings

Make it with Twining’s

Sweet Tea is extra special in the UK because of Twinings English Breakfast Tea. It is so much better than Lipton (the common brand in the USA). Unfortunately, hot tea with milk is sacred in the UK and many people won’t try this iced alternative. However, sweet iced tea is delicious, especially during the week of summer we get every year.

American Mason Jars
Buy on Amazon.co.uk

In summer, make 5L of sweet tea for summer BBQ or picnic and just top up everyone’s glass throughout the day. The Mason Jar Mug completes the American feel and is available from Amazon.co.uk.
