Southern Style Sweet Tea




Inspired by the Southern States, this is a much-loved speciali-tea. Your favorite Lipton® Tea, chilled with a little lemon and mint if you’d like! Simple. Classic. A superb sweet tea treat.


  • 16 cups water, divided

  • 6 Lipton® Cup Size Tea Bags or 3 Lipton® Iced Tea Brew Family Size Tea Bags 

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda

  • Fresh Lemon (if desired)

  • Fresh Mint (if desired)


  •  Bring 4 cups water to a boil over high heat in 2-quart saucepan. Remove from heat; add Lipton® Cup Size Tea Bags and brew 15 minutes, dunking Tea Bags several times. Remove Tea Bags and squeeze.
