A Roundup of Refreshing and Delicious Iced Sweet Tea Recipes

Here in the Southern United States, some call iced sweet tea “the wine of the South” because it is drunk by the gallon throughout the year. Since iced tea here is traditionally served sweetened with plenty of sugar (or occasionally honey) by default, it’s called sweet tea down here. (Tea served without sugar is called unsweet tea.) Up North where I grew up, it’s called iced tea.

According to this page on What’s Cooking America, due to its long growing season and semi-tropical climate, South Carolina is the first place in the United States where tea was grown and is the only state to ever have produced tea commercially.

Tea is still cultivated on the Charleston Tea Plantation which is now owned by Bigelow Tea which is also home to the annual First Flush Tea Festival.

Here’s a few iced sweet tea recipes to help you survive the heat as we move closer to August.
