Moonshine Sweet Tea giveaway

Today we’re giving away a sweet little taste of Texas: Moonshine Sweet Tea.

There are so many budding local food companies here in Austin… good people that are making great things with the best of the best ingredients. So when the folks at Moonshine Sweet Tea approached me, I was over the moon (bad pun, sorry), because this is exactly the kind of business I am excited to support… Family owned: check, locally made: check, good typography: check check.

The recipe has been passed down for 4 generations. It’s handmade in small batches using real organic tea leaves. The sweet tea is highly concentrated… mix just a splash of it with water and drink it cold or hot. I also love it mixed with vodka and a squeeze of lemon. (note: there’s no actual moonshine in the tea, it’s just a cute name).

If you live in Austin, head to Whole Foods on Lamar, Dec. 18th & 19th for a free taste.

The giveaway is now closed, thanks for all your comments! Special thanks to Moonshine Sweet Tea for sponsoring this post!
