Sounds like an interesting experiment. You may want to figure out the fermentation, and then back sweeten afterwards.

Same here brother, what you do is order your "Sweet Tea", when the waitress looks at you like you just spoke to her in Latin and then replies with the standard "I can bring you some sugar packets"; as calmly as you can ask for the unsweetened ice tea with no ice, a glass of ice, 10 packs of sugar and a cup of hot water. Mix the sugar in the hot water until dissolved and add to the tea to taste. Then add your ice.
Yeah it's anal, but sometimes I just want a damned sweet tea.
