World's Largest Sweet Tea

The “World’s Largest Sweet Tea” has called Summerville home since 2016 when it earned its rightful place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Holding a whopping 2,524 U.S. gallons of tea, the mighty beverage was brewed using 210 pounds of loose tea and 1,700 pounds of sugar. When makers of the tea put 300 pounds of ice in the drink, they didn’t have enough to bring the temperature down to the required 45 degrees, so they used several hundred additional pounds of ice to get it to the right frosty temperature. Located in the heart of Summerville, this larger than life attraction is less than 5 miles away from Cambria Hotel Summerville - Charleston.
