Sweet Tea

Getting reviews...
Why would you drink that store-bought stuff, even in those fancy bottles, when you could have Gran's iced tea? No matter when I'd stop by, Gran would have a jug in the fridge. It didn't much matter what we were eatin'-boudin or chicken-fried steak-I always looked forward to a glass of that sweet tea. Sookie doesn't cook much when I come 'round, and she certainly ain't been makin' tea like Gran used to, so usually I'll just settle for a beer. But when it gets real hot and I'm comin' off a tough road-crew shift? That's when I miss it most. JASON STACKHOUSE
