Arcadia Farms Sweet Tea Southern Style

Arcadia Farms Sweet Tea Southern Style

Down in North Carolina natural streams careen down from the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. Arcadia Farms uses that fresh water to make their personal take on southern sweet tea. It’s too bad that they use the water directly from the streams and don’t take any measures to “clean it up.” There is just a pump that sucks the water directly from the stream out back on the Arcadia land into the vat that they make their tea in. Don’t they know that squirrels, coyotes and various other fauna do their business in that water? Maybe I can’t prove that they actual do that, but I think I might believe someone if they told me that after having tasted this tea. It doesn’t really taste like tea at all. It tastes more like extremely heavily sugared dirty water. I can get by the insane sugar taste since it is sweet tea after all. I cannot get past the fact that it doesn’t taste like tea; you know the main ingredient in “tea.” The strange thing is that the ingredients list ‘brewed tea,” which generally means that you’re in for a good beverage. Somehow the Farm got it all wrong.

Swiss Premium Sweet Tea Southern Style

Swiss Premium Sweet Tea Southern Style

There is something very particular about the way the sugar tastes in southern sweet tea, and Swiss has hit the bulls-eye. It's overly sweet, but without the terrible sickly sweet aftertaste. A lot of companies have been trying to replicate this taste, and this is one of the better versions I have had. I for one am glad that Swiss has come out with a Premium line.
