How To Make Good Ol’ Alabama Sweet Tea

Tea is one of those aromatic beverages that works so well with biscuits and little treats. They are great sources of antioxidants and are good for your health. Settle in for a nice cup of hot tea to soothe your frazzled nerves, especially after a long day at work. These cups of warm delight can lift your spirits in many ways. But not all tea comes in warm, hence we have many iced tea recipes as well. Try tea as an ice-cold drink with added flavors of lemon, mint, and tasty spices. A cup of that is enough to energize you for the whole day. Or if you like a fancy cup of milk tea like the British royals, we also have just the right tea recipe for you.
