Reviews for Raspberry Sweet Tea
"It's really good Raspberry Sweet Tea."
"I have a crazy question to ask about this, but I wanted to see if I could make the tea with a 1 gallon size tea bag and the normal amount of regular sugar, instead of sugar substitute, I would put in my regular sweet tea. I didn't know if I should use my regular amount since fruit is going to be added and didn't know if it would make it too sweet. Any thoughts?"
"This is very refreshing on a hot day. I have made it several times and really enjoy it."
"bb2,I re-read your post, and I think you are saying it is just too much sugar for a gallon. I just adjust for sweetness that I like. Is that what you were asking?"
"Go ahead and try it! The recipe calls for sugar substitute. I imagine you could use regular sugar if you wanted to. For myself, I will use the sugar substitute, but will use sugar when I make it for anyone else."
