Summerville Sweet Tea Event

The Worlds Largest Sweet Tea Event 

On Wednesday, June 10, 2015 The Town of Summerville celebrated 'National Tea Day' by smashing a World Record. 

Thousands gathered around town hall to watch as the tea was brewed, chilled and poured and to enjoy the celebration after the attempt was made official. Summerville now holds the record for the Largest Sweet Tea. Summerville's sweet tea measured in at 1,425 gallons or more than 23,000 cups of sweet tea. It bested the previous record held by Chick-fil-A since 2010 by 513 gallons.

The 1,425 gallons of sweet tea was brewed using SCE&G, 120 pounds of local tea leaves from the Charleston Tea Plantation, 1,600 pounds of Dixie Crystals– the sugar of the south and a lot of local support from our friends at Scout Boats and Kion North America.

Alex, an Adjudicator from the Guinness Book of World Records was on hand to oversee, verify and present the record for the World's Largest Sweet Iced Tea.
