:: sweet tea. i think i love you.

can i make a bold statement?

i think i've discovered the best iced tea. ever.

second only to my mother's famous nestea.
and a delicious-beyond-words genuine southern sweet tea a little old lady made me in north carolina.

i discovered my first bottle of sweet leaf tea on a shelf in the local kroger.
i bought it for the cute granny on the wrapper & the organic origins.
but i became addicted on account of the fabulous taste.
the combination of green tea, honey and mint is perfection.
genuinely quenching your thirst, while still giving you the illusion of a sweet indulgence.

when i returned to kroger to stock up-- i was shocked to discover empty shelves.
say it isn't so!?!
determined to never be rendered sweet leaf tea-less, i took to the internet.
and have since been ordering this fabulous 'granny tea' in bulk.
straight from the source.

do visit the website.
it's the coolest. it even has a little radio icon that plays sweet leaf's radio station.
its own personal pandora.
you gotta love that.

order a case. or search your zip code for a retailer near you.
every single sip will be worth it.

p.s. always spring for the glass bottle. it just tastes better.


  1. EVERYTHING tastes better in a glass bottle, don't you think Alfie?!
    Have a great Memorial Day :)

  5. Everyone in Austin LOVES Sweet Leaf! So delicious! But I agree--not as delicious as my mothers!

  6. oh man, i am not a tea person so i'm gonna have to take your word for this! but i do love the packaging. to answer your question: i was reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and have just begun Water for Elephants. The former was pure entertainment, but I have a feeling I'm really going to LOVE the latter!

  7. I will check that out! My husband makes mangoberry tea in our shop that is a HUGE hit, I am DYING to bottle and sell it, I think we will be millionaires! So this is great, I need to check them out, hooray for indie tea bottlers!

  8. no it's true, I got a coupon for a free one at wholefoods, and I've been hooked ever since...

  9. that sounds like heaven in a bottle! i love me some sweet tea :)

  10. What a pretty blog you have! I'm excited to be your newest follower. I'm not big on tea, but perhaps i'll have to try this one.

  11. Quite bold. ha ha. I am not into ice tea but I sure love warm herbal tea. Yum.


  12. wow! I think you've convinced me! definitely going to seek this one out. thanks for the recommendation :)

  13. Sounds wonderful!! I've been so into iced tea lately...will absolutely be trying this :)

  14. Oh yes this tea is amazing. I've only had it a few times, but love every drop of it's sweet delightful taste. I am always on the lookout but it's definitely harder to find than one would think.
