This recipe for Traditional Southern Sweet Tea will make a perfect batch of this classic iced beverage. Southern sweet tea is distinct from other iced tea recipes because it has plenty of sugar to give it the right amount of sweetness. In order to be considered truly Southern, this tea should be made with three quarters of a cup of sugar. Serve this hallmark of Southern culture and cuisine over ice with a big lemon wedge.

I wonder what my Southern roommate's "Mema" would think if I made this recipe! Impressed, I hope!
