Sweet Ice Tea is one of the best drinks for the summer. Sweet tea is commonly enjoyed in the southern states more than others, but it makes no difference which state you are in as long as you have some tea and sugar. Sweet tea is made from black tea leaves, brewed per the directions on the box, then infused with sugar water (or simple syrup) usually to taste. The taste for sweet tea drinkers is to have the tea sweet, very sweet, hence the sweet part in the name sweet tea. Since summer is here I would suggest making a nice pitcher of the iced tea, pouring it over a full cup of ice, and enjoying the refreshing flavors of sweet tea.
