Sweet Tea in a Mason Jar: It’s a Southern Breeze Thing

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Mason Jar

It’s no secret that I’m a Southern Girl.  I’ve shared with you time and time again that I love living in east Tennessee – at the foot of the mountains in the South.

There are so many, many things to love about living in the South – the friendly neighbors, the slow pace of living, but one thing that tops just about everyone’s list that are both natives and transplants is… the food.  I can talk to you about Southern and Fried Foods all day long, but there’s one thing that you’ll almost always see on the table next to any good Southern meal, oh you know what I’m talking about… Tea!

Sweet Tea Outside

Not just any tea, mind you.  Sweet Iced Tea.  If you go to a restaurant and ask for unsweetened Tea, sure you’ll get it, but if you order “Tea”, it’ll come sweet because that’s the way we drink it down here!  But, it also may contribute a bit to the fact that our waist lines in the South tend to be a little larger than others – that and the delicious fried foods and biscuits and gravy.  But thank goodness, Southern Breeze has released a new product just for Southern Belles [and gentlemen] to enjoy our Sweet Tea without the calories!

Sweet Tea Mason Jar

Yep, I said without the calories as in… a mason jar full of deliciously sweet,

Sweet Tea with ZERO calories.

How?  Well, I’m glad you asked because I was going to show you!

Box of Tea Bags

In addition to having perhaps the cutest tea tags ever – Southern Breeze contains sweetener right inside the tea bag.  No adding cup after cup [I’m telling you – we like our tea sweet] of sugar once your tea has brewed… with Southern Breeze, your tea is sweetening as it steeps!

Southern Breeze Tea Steeping

The process of brewing the tea is super simple as well, which I love because I never think to make tea until I am actually ready to drink it.  So forget the hours of waiting for sun tea to brew – you simply boil 2 quarts of water then put 2 Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Bags in your pitcher [no extra sugar, remember!] and steep for 3-5 minutes!

Since Southern Breeze Sweet Tea uses Splenda to sweeten the tea – it has ZERO calories.  It’s real tea leaves and real sweetener right inside the bag!  Believe me, it’s sweet enough for this Country Girl and no calories means it’s a daily drink for me now!

Taste of the South

You’re going to want to connect with Southern Breeze just like I do, to keep up with what other interesting products this company has brewing!  You can follow Southern Breeze on Facebook, Twitter, and my favorite… instagram!

    i am completely addicted to sweet tea. you will never see me without my big ol mug of it. i have started out the driveway to go to the local store and went back into the house because i left it there. the store is less than on minute away…but you never know who you may run into and chat with a while….sooo you need to make sure you have your sweet tea with you at all times. LOVE the stuff.

  7. Stephanie M says

    I’ve never tried southern sweet tea but I love tea during the summer – so refreshing. I remember making sun tea growing up.

  8. Natalie Brown says

    Hi! I’ve never tried this product before but drink sweet tea or unsweetened tea quite often. My favorite iced tea memory is that I never really drank it before I moved to Florida 30 years ago. I’d always wanted to live here & drinking it reminds me that I live in a place I love. Thank-you for the chance in this fun giveaway!

  9. Amanda Alvarado says

    BUT does it TASTE the SAME as sweet tea sweetened with sugar?!?!?! That is the deal breaker! LOL We love our sweet tea here and dh is loving the Keurig Lipton sweet teas. He can just brew himself up a cup anytime he feels like it and doesn’t have to wait for me to make a pitcher! 😉

  10. Kimberly P says

    I love sweet tea. It is really neat that the sweetener is in the tea bag already. I would love to try it.

  11. nancy chipriano says

    I love Sweet Tea! I have memories of drinking sweet tea every summer at all my relatives’ houses.

  12. Misha Estrada says

    I love sweet tea. I grew up drinking it with supper every night. I’m shocked that I didn’t have trouble sleeping. I still make it pretty often.

  13. Laura Kathleen says

    I’ve never been a big sweet tea drinker, even when I lived in Louisiana. I’m more a lemonade girl, but I DO love drinking out of mason jars! Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. e michelle says

    I hate sweet tea! My hubby LOVES IT! I make it for him because I am a good wife. I remember the first time I tasted it on the way moving from pa to fla, we broke down and a nice family who owned the garage offered us some iced tea. I thought it was the kind from the can that I was used to…NOT. but I drank it to be polite!

  15. Alona Y says

    I think I have only had Arizona southern sweet tea, I don’t imagine that really counts! Sounds good.

  16. Alex T says

    I LOVE southern sweet tea but try not to drink it too often – I love the idea of the splenda right in the tea bags! Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. Erin Madigan says

    I sure am a southern sweet tea drinker! Growing up in Mississippi, sweet tea is a staple in our house! I remember going over to my great grandmothers house when I was little and she would always have sweet tea and hoecake waiting!

  18. Gabrielle W. says

    My family loves sweet ice tea! It’s funny, my sister in law hates tea, so I joke that we might have to disown her.

  19. Shilo Beedy says

    I bought sweet tea from a grocery store and loved it but not sure if it was like the southern sweet tea.

  20. Ashley Trail says

    Yes, I sure do love my tea and the sweeter the better! I like to make sun tea , thanks for the chance hun !

  21. Robin Wilson says

    Yes ma’am! I am a Southern Sweet Tea Drinker and have been my entire life! I was born and raised and still live in NC and we have it in the fridge at all times. It’s pretty much like having water on hand, heaven forbid your’re without! I learned how to make good sweet tea from my grandmother, with boiling water from a pot off the stove…no Mr Coffee Iced Tea maker in her house. I still make it “her” way.

  22. jeani b says

    oh yes! it is the best. i had a friend who was from the south and nothing topped the kind she made. it was completely homemade. don’t ask me how, i just know it is really good.

  23. Jackie says

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried Southern Sweet Tea. It sure looks delicious and refreshing!
    Thank you!

  24. Carla D. says

    I am definitely a sweet tea drinker. It’s my absolute favorite drink and nothing else compares. I splash a bit of Country Time lemonade in mine though. 😛

  25. Patti Hess says

    I love Sweet Tea! Personally I have been afraid to try to make it on my own in fear I would ruin it; but I would love to try it some day!

  26. Tamara N says

    I have never tried Southern Breeze Sweet Tea but now that I read your review I am going to look for it. We definitely love sweet tea in this house. I can remember sitting on the porch with my grandma on a hot day sipping tea.

  27. Veronica Bohan says

    I am a Southern Sweet Tea Drinker. My daughter and I love tea and ice tea in the summer is great!

  29. Robin Christofaro says

    I love sweet tea, but I’ve heard that we Northerners don’t know what real sweet tea is. Maybe you can introduce me to some true Southern sweet tea!

  30. Sarah says

    When we moved south, I discovered really good sweet tea and I never looked back. Well, until I realized how much sugar I was taking in and then started to eliminated it from my diet. I would love to drink sweet tea again without the guilt!

  31. Megan says

    We love drinking sweet tea out of our mason jars! We also have a gallon mason jar to make tea. Would love to try this!

  32. Deana Stephens says

    I LOVE Sweet Tea, there’s nothing better – with lots of ice and lemon! No coffee or pop for me.

  33. Lydia Lay Clark says

    Yes, I am a southern sweet tea drinker! I grew up in a small town in GA and it’s a staple! I have great memories of having mason jars of sweet tea with my siblings, high up in magnolia trees.
