A Hellacious Belle’s Guide to the New South: Sweet Tea

It’s been called the “wine of the South.”

“Alabama Ale.”

It’s mandatory for all meals and a big cold glass will perk you right up on a hot afternoon.

Teeth-numbing sweet, strong and icy.

From food.com, “Absolutely the Best Southern Sweet Tea”

Directions

  1. Hold tea bags lined up evenly by the strings and make a loop knot to hold them together. Pull off paper and staple (from paper side). Set aside.
  2. In a one gallon pitcher, add very hot water. Stir in the sugar till dissolved.
  3. Add tea bags and dunk into water a few times, then leave them in the pitcher. Cover with lid of pitcher and refrigerate.
  4. Wait until it is very cold (at least 3-4 hours). The flavor changes until it reaches the ‘cold’ state.
  5. Drink and enjoypictqpTWI

Cheers, y’all!

You’ll be my sugar baby
I’ll be your sweet iced tea
You’ll be my honeysuckle
I’ll be your honey bee
