In the South, tea is king. Your drink choices are normally water or tea. And it’s sweet, it’s just implied. Everyone loves it and it is expected and required at any social event you are at. Bridal showers, baby showers, book club, bible club, birthday parties/dinners, every event.
This tea is a twist on the normal sweet tea. It is still sweet and it still tastes like tea, but so much better. It has lemonade in it, but it isn’t overbearing and does not change the drink to an Arnold Palmer, at all. You may want to put a little warning somewhere near the pitcher, because it does contain almond extract.
If you are in a hurry, you can always buy a gallon of your favorite sweet tea and add the lemonade and extracts.
