Sweet iced tea is a Southern classic, but in this fresh take on a classic recipe, the drink gets dressed up with fresh seasonal strawberries. Strawberries make an excellent addition to the traditional recipe, adding a slightly acidic and sweet note without the need to add artificial sugar to the flavor of the sweet tea.
The key to making a good Southern sweet iced tea is to brew the tea properly and sweeten it before chilling it. This will ensure that you have no sugar granules at the bottom of your glass, and that every sip will be just as deliciously sweet. If you've got a hankering for a glass in the winter, you could easily make this drink with thawed frozen strawberries too.
