The Birthplace of Sweet Tea..

Updated: Aug 4, 2020

When my husband and I moved to South Carolina, we picked a town outside of Charleston called Summerville to live. We don't have a long drive to downtown Charleston, most of the beaches, and a lot of attractions. One thing that I did not know about before we moved here is that Summerville is apparently the birthplace of sweet tea. This would be an amazing thing if only I liked sweet tea but I don't. I try not to say it too loud because I think it is part of being a true southerner and so maybe one day I can learn to like it. We have our calendar marked for September 14th because that is when The Official Sweet Tea Festival is going to be in downtown Summerville. It sounds like a lot of fun, we even are going to purchase our 2020 Souvenir Mugs ahead of time! I am even going to be getting one so I can give the appearance that I am drinking sweet tea along with everyone else. You never know, maybe I will find one that weekend that I enjoy!
