Austin: Texas Tea

We Texans are a little nuts when it comes to iced tea. Growing up every family picnic, bbq, dinner, birthday party always had a huge orange cooler with a spout - that cooler more than likely "borrowed" from a construction site that one of my uncles was working on - carrying fresh brewed sweet tea. Ice-filled styrofoam cups would go round, and the brew was sucked on for the rest of the afternoon.
So I was excited to find out about Texas Tea which is made from organic tea and spring water. They have sweetened and unsweetened versions - though I've never met a Texan who doesn't drink it sweet - but I'm itching to try their fruit versions which are made with the juice of say, peaches from Fredericksburg or strawberries from Poteet. Available at Central Market.
