"What's more Southern than sweet iced tea? I've lived in Florida all my life, yet I'm not a huge fan of the overly sweet iced tea that is popular here in the South. My grandma has made this version for as long as I can remember and it is the BEST!! Not too sweet, and not too bitter...and the fresh lime juice --- amazing!!!"

Oh my goodness! I just saw that this recipe was published (I'm the submitter). Just an FYI - you could CERTAINLY add more/less sugar if you'd like. The amount of sugar that I indicated is just ...

My grandma used to make a variation of this tea. We used 1 (small) can of frozen limeade instead of juicing all those limes. Its DEElicious!

This is lovely. So different from your usual teas. My husband drank near the whole darn thing by himself! I think I'd like to do half with Splenda and the other half with sugar next time and hid...
