Making sweet tea

June 18, 2009

I think I’ve discovered one of the secrets to making really good sweet tea. At one of my favorite sweet tea making eateries in town, I’ve noticed that after they brew the tea they add the sugar, then stir the batch for a minute with a really big spoon and let it sit for a few more minutes (unless they’re getting a lot of business, then they’re kind of forced to serve it before its properly ‘done’).

At first, I assumed this was done to make sure the sugar was completely dissolved and mixed thoroughly- Istill believe this is the main objective to that. However, it occurred to me that in stirring the tea that they were also airing it out. I made some tea at home and after brewing, added the sugar, stirred it, and then let it set for a few minutes. It might be in my head, but it sure seems to taste better than my past failed attempts at making this beloved beverage. Viva Sweet Tea! ^-^-b
