Sugar-Free Sweet Tea
This sugar-free sweet tea is perfect for the summer, or anytime you need a low-carb refreshing drink. This easy keto tea uses an erythritol/stevia-based sweetener to make sweet tea.
- 16 Cups Water, divided
- 4 family-sized Tea Bags
- 3 Tablespoons Super Sweet
Place 8 cups of water in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil.
Remove the saucepan from heat and add the tea bags. Cover and allow the tea to steep for 5 to 6 minutes. (Steep longer for stronger tea.)
Meanwhile, add an additional 8 cups of water to a gallon-sized pitcher.
Remove tea bags from saucepot, gently squeezing to remove the excess tea. Discard the tea bags.
To the saucepan, add the sweetener and stir until completely blended.
Pour the tea into the gallon-sized pitcher with the water. Stir to combine.
Cover the pitcher and refrigerate. Best if refrigerated overnight.
If you have an electric tea kettle, you can heat the water in your kettle, then pour it directly over the tea bags in your pitcher.
After the tea steeps, gently remove the tea bags (squeeze them to remove the water) and add the Super Sweet directly to your pitcher.
Stir until the sweetener is dissolved, then add ice and water to fill the pitcher.
If you do not have Super Sweet, you can use an equal amount of Pyure, which can be found in most grocery stores.
Or, you can use 6 Tablespoons of Gentle Sweet or my Gentle Sweet Substitute - Low Carb Powdered Sugar.
