Iced Tea ---- A Confession and a Carol

OK, don't gasp...not in this heat.

Sweet tea is NOT served here.

Nope.  Not at my house.

Although I have lived in the South most of my life, I can not stand sweet tea.  There I said it. 

But don't let that hold you back.  Go "fix ya some tea"  and then come back and watch a cute video clip:

"Southern Living" Southern Sweet Tea

6 cups boiling water
4 family size tea bags
1 to 1½ cups sugar

Pour boiling water over tea bags; cover and steep for 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar. Pour the mixture into a 1 gallon pitcher, and add enough water to fill it to the top. Serve over ice.

So, with my sincerest apologies to all my TRUE SOUTHERN SWEET TEA drankers, enjoy this tribute.

Happy sippin' ya'll!


  1. Becky!!!!! And here I've been thinking for four years that I was the only person in all of Georgia who didn't like sweet tea! It's so yucky!

  2. That video was so funny!!! So true too!!! Well, My Mama is a southern girl and my Daddy is a yankee so I drink it both ways. :-)

    Aren't you glad you finally got that confesion off your chest!

    Your such a dear!
    Love Carissa

  3. Another 50's empty nester! Nice blog!

  4. This is so funny! I have a friend in TN, and all she talks about is sweet tea, I went to college at Abilene Christian U, and I too found out I hated sweet tea! YUKKY!

    Found your blog through the Christian Womens Blogs, I will add you to my follow list!
    Bless you,
