Is Sweet Tea bad for you?

A 12-ounce can of cola contains about 150 calories and 41 grams of sugar, making it more unhealthy than the same serving size of southern sweet tea. Cola also contains 30 milligrams of sodium, while sweet tea has none.

Also question is, how do you take the bitterness out of tea?

To fix bitter tea:
  1. Add a pinch of baking soda. Just a pinch will do or else you'll wind up with tea that tastes like baking soda.
  2. Add a dash of honey or agave syrup. Though no amount of sugar will completely rid your tea of its bitterness, sweetening it up a bit can mask the taste.
  3. Pour over ice.

How do you make good iced tea?

Bring 8 cups water to a simmer; remove from the heat and add 3 tablespoons loose tea or 6 tea bags. Let steep about 4 minutes, until it's the strength you like. Strain loose tea with a fine-mesh sieve or remove the tea bags. Let cool, then transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate.

Why is my iced tea bitter?

There are two ways for tea to become unpleasantly bitter: steeping at too high a temperature, or steeping for too long. (It's also possible that if your water is heavily chlorinated or otherwise impure that it could be making your tea taste bad, but that's far less likely than improper brewing.)
