Ingredients

Sweet Tea
  • 4 cups water, divided
  • 3 tea bags of black tea (I used Irish Breakfast)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup Swerve, Confectioners
Lemonade
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • 3 ¼ cups water

Instructions

  1. For the sweet tea, bring two cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add tea bags and baking soda. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes, then remove tea bags.
  2. Stir in Swerve and remaining water until well combined.
  3. For the lemonade, combine lemon juice, Swerve, and water in a container. Stir to mix well.
  4. To serve, fill glasses with ice and add equal parts tea and lemonade. Alternatively, you can combine them together in one large pitcher and pour into glasses to serve.
  5. Be sure to use plenty of ice and always stir before serving as the sweetener tends to settle out when it sits.

Makes about 8 cups.

    Baking aoda?

    • Swerve

      Hi Angela! Baking soda helps neutralize the bitterness of black tea and create a smoother flavor.

  • Betty Kaiser

    What is the purpose of the baking soda?

    • Swerve

      Hi Betty! Baking soda helps create a smoother flavor by decreasing the bitterness of the black tea. You can leave it out if you'd like.

    29 carbs? Is this for 1 cup? Am I reading this correctly? Low carb perhaps. But I wonder if it's even possible to enjoy this being keto?

    • Swerve

      Hi Renee! The total carb count is 29g, but the net carb count is only 1g per serving. The carbs from erythritol and fiber do not affect blood sugar, so they are considered non impact. Hope this helps!
