They did it!

As a follow-up to that last BLOG… YES, the Town of Summerville is once again the Guinness World Record holder in the category of largest cup of sweet tea.

There were some tense moments.  They had to stir it at 180 degrees for seven whole hours before it cooled to 33 degrees.  But the good folks in Summerville used a giant plastic oar to mix together 210 pounds of locally grown tea, 1,600 pounds of sugar, and 300 ten-pound blocks of ice to produce 2,524 gallons of sweet tea   –   thereby recapturing the world record from the interloper, Lipton, who stole it away from them this past October.
