Simple Flavored Sweet Tea

Here is Missouri sweet tea is a staple. We’re practically the south! I love a good sweet tea, but they are often too sweet for my taste. I also prefer flavored teas. So, I set out to make my own version. I think I finally perfected it, and wanted to share! The best part about this recipe is you can customize it so much. You can make the tea stronger by steeping it longer, you can make it sweeter by adding more sugar, and you can change up the flavors!

Happy sipping!
