I drink it every day. Sometimes I use baking soda and sometimes I don't.

I drink a ton of it, so I use luzianne or lipton family sized tea bags and I use 1/2 regular and 1/2 decaf or some variation of that (I drink so much of it that I really try to limit all that caffeine).

If you do add sugar, do it while the water is hot. I prefer to use equal sweetener (some use splenda or sweet n low). I fill a one liter cup (32 oz) with ice to the brim, then add 4-6 equal packets depending on how sweet I want it.

Sometimes instead of sweetener I just add lemon or lime (lemons are $$), but never sweetener and lemon or lime.

Go into a restaurant in the South. If they don't have sweet tea, they are probably a chain. We've been using Luzzianne as long as I can remember.

One good thing we do is thin slice orange into it instead of lemons. Peel and all. Gives it a Great flavor.

Except in New Orleans!!! Don't know why, but as geographically south as New Orleans is, for some reason there are many restaurants that only make unsweet. In fact, I would say that more often than not, I am told only unsweet in N.O. restaurants. Crazy as it sounds, I have actually come across non sweet tea drinkers, that don't even like the fact that its on the menu.

Agreed.... I will have a small bit of sweet tea when in the south, but prefer unsweetened brewed with a bit of salt and maybe some fresh mint... Much more refreshing...

Sweet tea leaves me feeling thirsty...

That's why I don't go to the big city
