Is it possible?
Down here in South Carolina, Sweet Tea vodka has caught on huge. Is it possible to make a sweet tea wine? and if so, any recipe ideas?

Thanks!

winemaking: requested recipes (Black Tea Wine)

That should work. Sweeten to taste, as directed. ANd of course, since we're talking sweet tea, "to taste" should be pretty darn sweet.

Do I necessarily need Black tea? or can I simply use some sort of generic? A la Lipton's?

You can sweeten with Splenda or another similar product, or you can stabilize with campden tablets and sweeten with real sugar (i.e. cane sugar, etc). Not sure about the Lipton's but it would probably work. I don't see why it wouldn't.
