20 Southern Sweet Tea Recipes

 


This plain, sweet tea is a staple at most southern dinner tables.  If you like sugar, go with two cups, but if you're like me and just want to taste the sugar - not heavy - go with 3/4 or less of a cup.
 



During the hot, summer months.. blackberries are growing like crazy in the south.  You can use some as a mix-in for your tea! 



This is one of my husband's favorite sweet tea recipes!
 



How fun would this be to serve for a brunch or backyard garden party?
 



One of my favorite restaurants serves peach tea... so good!



Fruit, as you can tell, is a wonderful addition to iced tea!



We love watermelon at our house - especially during summer time!
This sounds like a yummy drink, perfect for a hot day.



This sounds so refreshing!
 






This is a fun twist - use sweet tea for this yummy dessert!


 
This is another great dessert made from delicious, southern, sweet tea.



This looks like a wonderful dish to serve for a summer lunch.
 



And, this dish would be a wonderful dinner, paired with a salad and - sweet tea!
 


 
Once again... a perfect blend of a tart citrus bite against a sweet strong tea.



Oh. my. word.  I know that I would love, love, love this dish... pecan pie & sweet tea?  Hello!



 



 



This is delicious poured over ice cream and served with salted nuts... a simple sundae!



 






Do you have any sweet tea recipes?

I hope you enjoy and try some of these recipes!

  3. oh my now I'm hungry. I love sweet tea but it is almost never served here in New England. So, your recipes will come in handy. I think I will start with the peach, that's my favorite.
