First time I tried it was 5 years ago at my mom's boyfriend's house. That's all he'd drink. In his red solo cup. That's what I remember mostly about him. Sadly he is drinking his Milo's sweet tea in Heaven now. He lost his battle with covid in August of this year. Every time I drink it, it's in a red solo cup to remember him by. This is my favorite sweet tea thanks to him! RIP Melvin. We miss & love you!
