“I created this after surfing the web for a good recipe. I combined a few different recipe's and made my own adaption. I really like it, but like all good cooking, it's a work in progress. Oh, and my disclaimer: I was raised a Yank, but fell in love with Sweet Tea living in North Carolina. Sweeten to taste (of course). The "secret sugar" really changes the complexion of the sweet tea. Recipe is easily adaptable.”
