Life is sweeter with sweet tea, that's FOR SURE! Growing up, our mommas made us tall glasses of sweet tea with sugar syrup and oh my lord, it was delicious!
There’s nothing quite like a glass of sweet tea on a hot day down South. Even if you’re not from the South like we are, we’re sure you can relate. It’s a hot July day, you’re sitting outside hoping for a breeze…and someone hands you a glass of extra cold, extra sweet iced tea. There’s absolutely NOTHING that quenches thirst in the summer like Southern sweet tea.
When we were growing up, we didn’t think too much about how all that sugar affected us! Southern gals drink sweet tea…that’s just what we did. But as we got a little older, we starting wondering if it was high time we stopped drinking all that sugar and all those calories.
Now, if y’all are Southerners like we are, you know the idea of quitting sweet tea is just ridiculous. We run on sweet tea and we always have! But that’s exactly how Southern Breeze Sweet Tea was born.
How's it different from traditional sweet tea?
1. No sugar, Sugar!
We wanted to make a sweet tea that was just as delicious as traditional sweet tea, but without all that sugar! A healthier option for those of us that are trying to eat healthy, cut back on sugar, exercise more, or just avoid sugar for health reasons. There’d never been anything like a sugar-free sweet tea before! But we went ahead and did it…we made the first sugar-free Southern sweet tea. There are 0 grams of sugar in Southern Breeze, but alllll the sweet sips you need.
2. Kiss Those Calories Goodbye...
There’s nothing like committing to regular exercise and healthy eating…only to be tempted by a refreshing glass of sweet tea that’s FULL of calories you just burned! The world just ain’t that fair! But we got to thinking…what if there was a zero-calorie sweet tea? What if you COULD be healthy and drink sweet tea on the regular? So, with sugar-free sweet tea comes zero-calorie sweet tea. Southern Breeze has no calories at all, which means y’all can drink it to your heart’s content without feeling guilty! That’s the magic of #GuiltFreeSweetTea.
3. The Sweetness is in the Bag!
Remember when you had to make a sugar syrup or add heaping teaspoons of sugar to your pitcher of sweet tea and wait for it all to dissolve? It was added time and added effort. On our way to making a sugar-free, zero-calorie sweet tea, we thought “why not make this all super convenient?”
So we added the zero-calorie sweetener RIGHT into the tea bag. All you have to do is brew the tea bag according to the instructions—3-5 minutes for Hot Brew Sweet Tea and 5 minutes for Cold Brew Sweet Tea—and voila, your tea’s already as Southern sweet as you can get it! This means that on-the-go sweet tea is SO easy to make. Especially with Cold Brew…no sugar-packets, no extra sweetener, no nothing! Just brew and go!
4. The Finest Tea Leaves
Growing up, we just wanted a cold, sugary drink…it didn’t matter how good the actual tea was in our traditional Southern sweet tea! But now we know it’s better to drink quality tea. We only use real, quality tea leaves when making our sweet tea. Traditional sweet tea could be made from anything, including weak, low-quality tea leaves. Every tea bag we make is full of rich black tea for a richer, more delicious sweet tea experience for y'all!
5. The Southern Breeze Family...
If y'all are from the South like we are, you know how important community is down here. So we wanted Southern Breeze to represent this, the same way sweet tea has always represented community. We wanted Southern Breeze to revolve around friendship, family, and togetherness!
If you’re a Southern Breeze drinker, you’re a Southern Breeze Sweetie…and we take that seriously. We aim to give our Sweeties the best sweet tea we can make, but we don’t stop there.
