You say, “Chick-fil-a for the most consistently good sweet tea. I do ask them to mix sweet and unsweetened. That being said, I would prefer good tea that is a bit too sweet to hearing “we only have unsweetened tea.” I only expect to hear that in the north, not in GA!”
The AJC dining team’s specialist in Southern and Neighborhood Fare Jenny Turknett says, “Greenwood’s on Green Street remains my favorite place to get my sweet tea fix. The tea is smooth and refreshing rather than bitter and cloyingly sweet.”
