Southern Sweet Tea-Brined Turkey - Anyone Tried It?

I've been thinking about doing sweet tea-brined turkey this year, but I am curious to hear from other home cooks that have tried using this southern method of brining. I know with tea it's suppose to give it a more mahogany skin to the turkey, but does it taste any different?

    I just made a chicken recipe last night where you basically brined chicken breasts in sweet tea. I thought it tasted pretty good - there was just a very vague sweetness.
