Anytime you hear someone mention sweet iced tea…. you think of the South… because that is where the best sweet tea is found! Sweetened Iced Tea is as Southern a drink as you can find… and on a hot day there is nothing better. Southerner’s don’t make iced tea from a can or with one of those sun- tea jars… they make the real thing… from scratch!

My first job at age 16 was as a waitress… starting on a Friday night… and knowing nothing! One of my first customers – a Northern couple asked for tea with their meal. When I set down two glasses of sweet tea on their table, they immediately told me I’d brought them the wrong drink. I quickly learned “hot tea” was a drink…. who knew there was actually another type of tea. All we drink in the South is sweetened iced tea… that’s all I knew! I didn’t remain a waitress for too long – definitely wasn’t my cup of tea… Ha! My first job at age 16 was as a waitress… starting on a Friday night… and knowing nothing!

Well one day I went to Walmart with my daughter to pick up a couple of items and at check out I wanted something to drink. So I went to one of there coolers to find something to drink and came across Milo tea. I never heard of it at first. So I said I will give it a shot, being that I love ice tea. When I got in my car and open it up and began to drink, boy oh boy. The best tea ever! It was sweet like I like it and ice cold. I've been buying it ever since. A genuine glass of sweet tea is always what I first crave when I go home… and that’s where it tastes the best! The sweeter… The better!
