LOL Yes I know. How very un-Southern of me. I hate sweet tea. Trust me...if you give up the sweetener for two weeks...you'll never go back to it. Sweetener totally masks the flavor of the tea. You're just drinking sugar water. Blech! I did grow up on sweet tea and I don't even remember why I stopped it. I do like lemon or a mint leaf in my tea though, so I'm still somewhat Southernish.Unsweetened? Which Virginia do you live in?
