Re: “Summerville can't squeeze the facts out of sweet tea's murky history

I grew up in Western Kansas and sweet tea made by adding sugar to hot, boiled tea has been a tradition in our family since at least the 1940's, if not earlier - it had been passed down from my great-grandmother, who is no longer with us and able to tell where she learned to make tea that way. I have fond memories of taking massive jugs of sweet tea out to the wheat fields during harvest and eating lunch next to the combines before we got to ride in them.

Our family was part of the group of Volga Germans who immigrated to Western Kansas in the 1870's, so perhaps there are origins of sweet tea in the U.S. that stem from there as well?
