Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 15 mins Total time: 20 mins Serves: 10-12

Sweet tea is synonymous with Southern culture. When we order tea at a restaurant, we assume that the waiter will bring an ice-cold glass of sweet tea (maybe with lemon) that perfectly complements our meal. We serve tea at every Southern gathering, from funerals to baby showers to church potlucks. A pitcher of Southern sweet tea doesn't last long in the fridge – but with this recipe, you'll be able to replenish the supply in no time. Just what we all can enjoy with Zero calories, Zero sugar , and Zero aftertaste.
