Tea Sweetener

Sweet Tea is typically sweetened to taste depending on who makes the tea, even when there is a procedure. With Hartley’s Sweeteners® we have simplified the process and developed a product that is equivalent to the sweetness that has become an industry standard.

With no measuring or constant stirring necessary, Hartley’s Sweeteners eliminates the problems of inconsistent Sweet Tea. Simply add Hartley’s Sweeteners® liquid tea sweetener to your fresh brewed tea and your Sweet Tea is ready to serve.

Consistent and Easy to Use

Although some restaurants may have a procedure for making Sweet Tea, many of the employees will vary that procedure based on their own taste or comments from customers. Hartley’s Sweeteners offers a consistent Sweet Tea every time because it requires no measuring.

Often times sugar does not get dissolved if the person making the tea does not stir the tea properly, leading to inconsistency as well as sanitation concerns. Hartley’s Sweeteners® is a liquid and does not require any dissolving or heavy stirring.

Eliminated Sanitation Concerns

Sanitation is always a concern in any foodservice operation. If the sugar is not dissolved properly, it can cake in the bottom of the tea urn or in the spigot. This can lead to bacteria if not cleaned regularly and properly.With Hartley’s Sweeteners® there is no measuring or partial bags of sugar to store. Use the entire 32 oz bottle of Hartley’s Sweeteners® for a 3 gallon brew and throw the empty container away. This eliminates the possible risk of cross contamination from improper handling of open bags of sugar and improper sanitation and storage of measuring cups. No handling bag-in-box sweetener options available as well.

Know Your True Tea Costs

Hartley’s Sweeteners® liquid sweetener costs slightly more (approximately $1) per brew compared to sugar; however, that’s assuming your tea is being sweetened with the same amount of sugar every time. Know what your true tea costs are with Hartley’s Sweeteners® and the tea leaves of your choice.
