Sunkissed Sweet Tea: A Refreshing Take on a Classic Southern Recipe

There's nothing quite like the satisfying sip of sweet tea on a warm summer day – it's a beloved tradition in the South that never goes out of style. And today, we're sharing our secret recipe for the perfect batch of Southern Sweet Tea that will become a staple in your summer repertoire.

Sunkissed Sweet Tea

Yield: 8 Cups

Ingredients:

  • 6 black tea bags
  • 8 cups of water
  • ½-1 cup white sugar, to sweetness preference
  • A pinch of baking soda (about ⅛ teaspoon)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed, if possible
  • [OPTIONAL] Lemon slices and/or mint sprigs for garnish


Instructions:

  1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan (make sure it's large enough to add 5 more cups of water later).
  2. Remove from heat, add the tea bags, and cover to steep for up to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove tea bags and stir in the sugar, baking soda, and lemon juice until dissolved.
  4. Pour in the remaining 5 cups of water and mix well.
  5. Pour into a large pitcher and refrigerate for a few hours until cool.
  6. Serve as is or over ice, and garnish with leftover lemon slices or a sprig of mint, if desired.


Why Baking Soda?

Ah, the secret ingredient that truly defines the smooth sweet tea flavor – baking soda! You might be wondering why it's in there, but trust us, it's a game-changer. Many believe that baking soda works its magic by neutralizing the tannins in the tea, which are responsible for that bitter taste. By adding just a pinch, we're able to achieve that perfect balance of sweetness without any hint of bitterness. It's the key to achieving that classic Southern flavor that keeps you coming back for more. Research is limited regarding whether this scientifically works or is just an old wives tale. We think it’s a charming addition, so feel free to experiment and see what you prefer!
