Try different flavored teas for a pick me up.

Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry Sweet Tea was sooo good, it was like Liquid Blueberry Pie or Blueberry Juice. Can't even tell it was tea....

Lipton French Vanilla Sweet Tea.....about the same with a little vanilla added to it. Really good too.

Lipton Green Tea with Mandarin Orange Flavor was really good!

I love sweet tea when I visit the south,it's always just right!. When I met my relatives in Mississippi,they made the BEST tea.
I never order ice tea in Cali because it's always unsweetened and its so hard to sweeten once it's cold.

Yes it is. It was that way back in Chicago. I just love it & you can adjust the sugar to your liking, but I usually do between 1 1/2 - 2 Cups, but you can do less, but I wouldn't go any lower than 1 Cup.
