Not So Sweet Iced Tea

Sweet tea is one of the most underrated simple pleasures in life. In the West Coast its even harder to come by a classic homemade sweet tea. We created a super simple and naturally sweetened tea for you all that you will want to make the rest of the summer. Go pick some lemons, grab your All-Sass, and get ready!

BLEND USED: All-Sass California Grape Nectar

Tasting attributes: The bright citrus elements of the Grape Nectar adds a citric twist while pairing perfectly with a bold ice tea.

Sweet tea is something that is rarely made at home these days. Normally you find a sweet tea in the form of Lipton or Arizona ice tea that is way too sweet and sweetened with artificial sweeteners or cane sugar. No matter which one you stumble upon, they are almost always loaded with way more sugar than you need. The beauty of homemade sweet tea is the longer it sits the bolder and sweeter it becomes naturally. Because of this method you don't need to front load the tea with a ton of sugar.

We created this sweet tea in the traditional sweet tea way. Grab your favorite brew of tea (in tea bags), steep it for however long you need to get that bold flavor and then add in the All Sass Grape Nectar. The All Sass adds the most refreshing citrus notes to this tea that you cannot get from typical cane sugar. When you go to serve this tea add in a little lemon or mint to taste. We love lemon, so we highly recommend squeezing some in the final product, especially because of how great it pairs with the All-Sass.

By using grape nectar in this ice tea it elevates your tea like you have never tasted it before. The grape nectar takes your typical iced tea from an overly sweet artificial flavor to a refined and complex flavor you can’t get anywhere else. This sweet tea is yet another way we are helping you #DrinkBetter and healthier for the summertime.
