Sweet Tea

So Since MxD's and Roy Rogers came out with their sweet tea, I have been on a search for the best bottled Sweet tea... so far I have found:

Tradewinds sweet tea is very good but a little too much lemon flavor for me

Old Peak is better because it has less lemon but still, I am not a fan of lemon in my tea which I think is why I like the McD's and Roy Rogers teas the best.

anyone have some other sweet tea makers that I can try?

Arizona has Sweet Tea, and so does Lipton, it's not that bad, not terribly sweet either. But nothing beats home-made!

None of it is as good as McD's or just about any place down south
I have been looking!

Hell, not even the McD's up here sell the sweet stuff, they have tea, but unsweetened

Just another reason for me to be counting the days til next years Deals Gap trip.

That being said, if you have a Raising Canes, they have some really sweet tea... Their lemonade is absolutely money.

About everywhere around here has decent sweet tea. I was in the Vermont/New Hampshire area back in May and asked for sweet tea and well...got this look.

I then remembered what I had been told about "up north" and quickly ordered a coke.
