My husband loves sweet tea. The only problem is I tend to mess it up every time that I try to make it. Somewhere between the brewing and the steeping and the sugar addition I have a cooking meltdown. He’s always said that sweet tea is the one thing that I can’t make. And he’s been right…until now. I’ve finally found a sweet tea that even I can’t complicate– Southern Breeze Sweet Tea.
So what makes this sweet tea so simple? The sweetener is INSIDE the tea bag! This eliminates a step for cooks like me that can’t figure out the “right” amount of sugar to add to my tea. Inside each tea bag is a combination of Splenda and real tea leaves that can satisfy any southerner’s craving for sweet tea- even my husband’s!
Even though brewing tea may be easy, Southern Breeze makes it mindless by providing step-by-step brewing instructions on the back of the box. I boiled two quarts of water, transferred the water to a large jug, and then placed two tea bags in the water to steep. After about five minutes, I removed the tea bags (psst….squeeze the bags into the water after removing them. That’s a tip that I learned from my grandmother. But, be careful, the bags will be hot!).
After a few hours in the refrigerator, the tea was ready to be placed over ice and enjoyed! And, if you’re an avid sweet tea drinker, then you’ll notice that I was able to skip the “adding sugar” step.
The hubby is ecstatic to finally have consistent, familiar sweet tea around the house. Southern Breeze Sweet Tea can be purchased at Harris Teeter, Ingles, Amazon.com, and Wegman’s. I’ll be heading out later this week to Harris Teeter or Ingles to buy another box.
