What is Sweet Leaf Tea

Updated on December 22, 2013

I have just made a grand discovery, which I must share with all of you! I have found Sweet Leaf Tea. I cannot believe I have not seen or heard of this marvelous product before. I have tried a few different flavors and they are awesome! Now I am not one to usually buy organic or any kind of tea for that matter, but I cannot get enough of this wonderful nectar of the gods!

What Is the Sweet Leaf Tea Company?

The idea for Sweat Leaf Tea was first thought of by founder Clayton Christopher in 1997 when he decided to produce a tea with his grandmothers recipe. By 1998 he was delivering his tea in small batches to local stores in a van with just over 200,000 miles on it. Clayton used pillow cases as tea bags and steeped them in 50 gallon crawfish pots . In 1999 he was joined by his childhood pal David Smith, and together the two began hitting it hard, and in 2003 were able to set up a new headquarters in Austin, TX. Today they have 45 employees and bottle about 10,000 gallons of tea a day in 3 major plants across the country.

The Tea

The company has eleven different kinds of tea to choose from, anything from my personal favorite Mint & Honey Tea to Diet Citrus Green Tea. They keep the ingredients fresh and simple here is what is in the Mint & Honey:

Filtered water, organic cane sugar, organic green tea, organic honey, organic spearmint extract, ascorbic acid, citric acid, and natural flavors

So as you can see the list isn't to crazy and is still very simple recipe. The other teas that they offer are just as simple in ingredients and just as yummy!

The flavors as of now are:

The Original Sweet Tea, Lemon Iced Tea, Citrus Green Tea, Mint & Honey Green Tea, Raspberry Sweet Tea, Peach Sweet Tea, Lemon & Lime Unsweet Tea, Original Lemonade, Half & Half Lemonade Tea, Diet Original Tea, and Diet Citrus Green Tea

Why I Like It..

The Sweet Leaf Tea Company has come up with some very tasty ideas for teas.I really was originally attracted to Sweet Leaf when I saw their awesome label. It looks hand drawn and the Mint & Honey has Claytons grandmother on it. I really enjoy what they have to offer and will continue to drink what ever they have to offer for a long time to come. Now this is not affiliated with the company in any way, except how I feel about their awesome array of beverages. I hope that they continue to produce for years to come.
