drank Sweet Tea by McDonald's
51 tasting notes

I don’t understand how people drink this stuff. Their not kidding when they say sweet. This was toooo sweet… I mean like it had some moments that had it okay, but erghhh it was kinda gross.
I knew I wasn’t going to get a healthy tea at Mc Donalds, but I mean this left a wierd taste in my mouth ( maybe because I was eating a fish filet but still haha )
Judging by other opinions, maybe they just didn’t make it right I’ll try another mc donalds in the near future and let you know.

It’s an aquired taste. I developed a major sweet tea addiction after vacationing in Savannah, GA for a week. I’ve definitely eaten at McDonald’s that did not make it correctly though. On a hot summer day it hits the spot for me.

Yeah it seems to be a hit, that’s why I felt a little left out that I wasn’t crazy about it. It was a nice day out today, so it was the perfect day for iced tea, I’ll try it again sometime…

They do make an unsweetened tea that they serve iced, but it’s not any better than iced lipton’s. funny seeing their tea reviewed here, but interesting.

I like sugar in all ways except in tea and suguar that isn’t in flavored syrup form in coffee. It’s SO hard to find unsweetened iced tea when I go out. Subway and Crate and Barrel are the only 2 I’ve discovered. And Crate and Barrel is a weird one since they serve Southern food.

JonTea

Subway makes one? I didn’t know, is it anygood?
Also the sweet tea did come unsweetened but it just didn’t look as exciting so I went for the sweeter one expecting they’ll go easy on me… Apparently not!
Yeah I thought it would be interesting to post a mcdonalds tea on steepster haha

Cofftea

They have a honey flavored sweetened one too (it may have lemon in it?)

It’s MUCH better than sweetened tea, but I’m not a fan of RTD iced tea… but this case could just be because it’s a black tea. Probably.

“the sweet tea did come unsweetened”… LOL! That may get you conked on the head in some parts of the south!:) If it’s unsweetened it is NOT sweet tea.;)

JonTea

LOL! I just noticed that, pretty funny.
The subway one sounds pretty good, I am a fan of fuze’s protein drinks so I’m sure they could pull off tea. The problem with the mcdonalds sweet tea is that it wasnt lite sugar it was like heavy syrupy sugar, thats what made it unejoyable for me

Lol in Texas everyone LOVES sweet tea … It’s more like “would you like some tea with your sugar?” haha but I am not big on anything that is very sugary so I too stay away from their sugar tea drink :-)

I used to drink tea with a lot of sugar and even I had/have problems with sweet tea. The reason it is so sweet is that they add corn syrup. I’ve been told that they heat up the tea and add the syrup to make it sweeter yet. Ugh.

I even think the Subway one is too sweet. I think their is HFCS in with it as well as the honey because it is crazy sweet. I wonder if they have a concentrate that they pour in with it because they do “brew” it. At least at my Subway it gives the impression that it is brewed. The only place I’ve found amazing iced tea is at Corner Bakery Cafe. They have a black currant iced tea that Mighty Leaf tea makes for them and it is amazing without any additives. Yum. I love black Currant though. I may have to go there tomorrow and get an extra large tea :)

JonTea

mmmm, Sounds good :D
Yeah I don’t know about the subway one, I will try that this week :D
