      EXCELLENT and this is the way we do Sweet Tea in the South. I was born, raised and still live in the South and we do LOVE our Sweet Tea!!! I love the flavor of Luziann tea the best. I can even recognize it in a restaurant. Tea is even good as a beverage between meals and great with a seafood dinner. Just can't beat it!!! Prepared as a participant in the Southern, Cajun & Creole Sept 2009 Tag Event in the Cooking Photo Forum.

      I really liked this recipe! Just the right amount of sugar. My husband doesn't like sweet tea, so I have the whole gallon to myself!!

      I am trying out different drinks to serve at a Southern theme dinner and tried this recipe. My family loved this sweet tea. Since I normally don't drink my tea with sugar it was a little to sweet for me but I am going to make it as one of the drinks since everyone liked it so much. Thanks Sweet T. Bullwinkle.
