Summer is here...

Not "officially," but it's here nonetheless. Every day is hot and humid, we've been to some yard sales, and I've rediscovered my love for sweet tea.

Sweet tea isn't just a summer treat though. Southerners know that sweet tea happens all year long. And sweet tea is NOT iced tea. You have to taste it to know the difference. And you'll be hooked.



See? Mmmmm.

So what's the difference between iced tea and sweet tea?

Mr. & Mrs. Boesch said...

Iced tea is brewed up cold or made with a mix, usually sweetened afterwards. Sweet tea is boiled, sweetened, then steeped. There's sun tea too, made using the sun to heat and steep, usually sweetened afterwards. There is a difference, and it's tasteable. ;)

Ah! But how do you know how much sweetener to use? I've had sun tea before--is that closer to sweet tea than iced tea? Can you tell I'm from the north? ;-)

Mr. & Mrs. Boesch said...

lol! Sun tea IS closer than iced tea. I'll have to email you a recipe to try out! ;)
