I’m a Southerner so I’m used to ultra sweet tea. Most of the time this stuff is even too sweet for me though! Can be sickly so. Good prices for so much tea but has to be made just right and it’s yucky when its warm. A bit too much on the sugar.

the only thing that makes me drink this awfully sweet" tea" is when my stashes of tea run dry! A cheap last resort, a slap to the face, a distant memory of good tea….the taste of loneliness.
My mom LOVES this tea. I used to like it, but it’s so bleh to me now. I have had the sweet tea at Popeye’s and it’s better. Though none are as good as Folks in Atlanta, GA. They make the BEST sweet tea.
If I am in a pinch, and I NEED tea, I will order it. But that’s rare. With my new travel mug, where I can brew tea anywhere there’s hot water, I won’t need to go to McD’s…YAY!
OK, so today is a sad day for good tea practices.
Just a disclaimer, I’m a true Southerner and Iced Tea means supersaturated with sugar with a viscosity akin to motor oil.
As far as the preeminent fast food chain’s version of sweet tea goes, it’s spot on. I actually find myself getting it whenever I’m there, whereas I don’t even consider getting tea at any other fast food chain. Maybe it’s marketing, maybe it’s in my head, but it’s pretty good.
It’s not complex, not breathtaking, but a pretty accurate take on the Southern Tradition. Unfortunately, I don’t really appreciate the use of High Fructose Corn Syrup in stead of good ol’ Sucrose, but you can’t really tell.
Now if only I can find a way to get back to drinking good tea…
With faint notes of nothingness and a slight empty feeling inside it’s great paired with McNuggets and an upset stomach.
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.
Although I much prefer brewing my own sweet tea, I’m glad McDonald’s has this now! It’s not half bad compared to some place’s ideas of what “tea” should be.
I don’t know why I like a fast-food sweet tea so much. Sweet tea itself is a different type of animal than regular brewed tea; it has a syrupyness that’s awesome. And McDonald’s does it right. :)
The best sweet tea from any fast food place!
I don’t know why I like this stuff but it is one of the only fresh tasting fast food teas. I won’t touch the food there but I do like the tea.
