Southern Sweet Tea

Meets nutrition guidance set by the American Diabetes Association®

There’s nothing like a cold, refreshing glass of sweet tea on a hot summer day. The “sweet” in this southern sweet tea comes completely from zero calorie Splenda® Stevia Sweetener Packets, so you don’t need to worry about a sugar rush. And it takes hardly any time to make! For an extra touch, garnish your tea with mint sprigs and lemon slices.
