Looking for Southern Sweet Tea

  • s

Anyone from Georgia or the Carolinas know where I can find SWEET TEA? Its that deliciously sweet tea that is native to the southeast.
I cant find it anywhere cept for home.

  1. roscoe's chicken and waffles has sweet tea

    1. Maybe Aunt Kizzy's Back Porch in Marina del REy? The iced tea there comes "sweet or not sweet". I believe Flossies in Redondo Beach might have this option too if my memory serves me correctly.

      1. My boyfriend moved here from ATL 2 years ago, and after trying all sorts of "sweet teas" from many different suggested places, he finally decided that the only place that made him feel like he was back home was good ole' Chick-fil-a. Unfortunately there's none in LA, but one in the South Bay Galleria in Gardena and one in the Tustin Marketplace in Tustin. I live in LA so whenever I visit my mom in OC, I buy 2 gallons of that stuff for him!

            Oh yeah and remember Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays, even the ones in the mall.

        2. Surfas has it in bottles, a great brand called Empire, for about a buck.

          1. Yes, Flossie's and M&M Soul Food both serve sweet tea. So does chick-fil-a and roscoe's.
            Here is a surprise: Lipton's in the glass bottles comes in sweet, and extra sweet. The bottles have etched tea leaves in the glass and a green label. I am from Atlanta, and this is the best sweet tea I have found outside the Old Hickory House in Buckhead.
