my MIL hasn't made sweet tea in almost 40 years

I started dating my dh when I was 14. He had a wonderful family and mine wasn't so good so they let me eat dinner with them daily. I absolutely hated sweet tea but it was all they drank(other than water of course). They felt bad for "forcing" me to drink it so they started buying coke for me to drink. Over time, the kids decided they liked Coke more and stopped drinking the tea so she stopped making it.

The other day we were visiting MIL and my grand niece says to MIL "grandma don't you like sweet tea? All of my other grandparents make a jug except you". That's when she explained that she quit making it around the time I started coming to dinner!

I never knew ME hating sweet tea would cause her to never make it again! Lol

Just sharing my little funny story :)

I don't make it myself but have had it several times. The very first time when I was in NC. I asked, is this Sweet Tea and they said yes it is!!! Ok that was the first, time I have ever had it. I have had it several times after I came back home. Sometimes good sometimes not.

I love sweet tea, but I rarely drink it. Too much sugar.
