YUMMY!!! I love Starbucks!!! It's all about sun tea, iced coffee, popsicles & shaved ice at our house!

foodiechickie said...

All sounds yummy! Is Sun Tea the same as Sweet Tea? I'd like to try it. I heard about it before and am curious about it.

MarylandMommy said...

We just take a clear gallon jug, fill it with water & add 8 tea bags. Then we let it "brew" in the sun all day. We don't sweeten ours but you could add sweetener to it. It's yummy & my husband & I can drink a gallon a day! LOL!

OOOh now I get it. Is Sweet tea then considered the drink like Snapple or Lipton? Thanks!

Mike said...

Sweet tea is generally sweetened with a simple sugar solution. Since the water is cold with iced tea, regular sugar won't disolve. So you use equal parts sugar and water and bring it to a boil. It creates a clear syrup sort of like corn syrup. Pour that in your tea and that's some southern sweet tea. My sister got me hooked on sweet tea, and now I brew make my own. Sweet tea is pretty big down here closer to the south./

I am a Georgia babe and we definitely do iced tea down here!

I love Starbucks!!!

Shannon said...

Yummmmm! All that chocolate. And black tea lemonade? Hmmm, I may have to try that next time.

foodiechickie said...

So Mike there are three different types of cold teas? Iced, Sun and Sweet Tea?

Yeah Hannah I am sure you are happy to finally get a Starbucks down there.

Shannon my hubby loves Black Tea Lemonade! It's only available the Spring and Summer so he is a sad guy when its not available. Hope you enjoy it.

Mike said...

Yeah I guess you can say they are three different types. Sweet and Iced are basically the same, except one is sweetened and one is not. Sun tea is just brewed a little different. Instead of boiling the water or using a tea brewer, you just set the tea bags and water out in the sun.

I see. Thanks!

We've been drinking a hibiscus flower drink known as "jamaica" non-stop. I've had this every summer since I can remember and now my kids love it too.

Ooooh sounds cool! I'm going to find a recipe for it.
