I am a California born and raised gal so we did not grow up with Sweet Tea. I had to find out how to make this wonderful brew.
Southern Style Sweet Tea
3 Large Tea Bags
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
vessel to store it in- a nice glass jar works best
Sorry Liptons!! I am a convert and I am now only going to use Luzianne tea. I was told this is the best tea ever, and boy were they right.
I thought it would be fun to explore some iced tea pitchers now that I know how to make a proper pitcher of Sweet Tea! Here are a few that I have found:
This is a Frigidaire pitcher in depression glass, you can find these on eBay or at Etsy. Love the color!!
Crate and Barrels Ona pitcher looks so pretty with tea in it.
Crate and Barrel Rustic white pitcher
Crate and Barrel Zazz barware pitcher. It looks so frosty, love that!!
Le Creuset pitcher in lime. I have this one and it is timeless.
Fun pitcher with its own tea strainer in the top from Rare Device.
Fiesta ware pitchers, reproductions are sold at Macy’s stores.
I am sure you Southern gals probably think I am funny, but truly I have never had a glass of ice tea this good before. I would love to hear if y’all (that was said with my newly acquired Southern accent) have any other old family secrets or advice on Sweet Tea?!
