SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) - People in Summerville were a little teed off when the record they set last year for brewing the world’s largest container of iced tea was broken a few months later.

So, they’re trying to set another record on Friday, which is also National Tea Day.

Last year, a 10-foot mason jar was filled with more than 1,400 gallons of sweet tea in Summerville. But that record was eclipsed in October when 2,200 gallons was brewed during a festival in nearby North Charleston.

Now the Summerville folks hope to regain their spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

They plan to brew 2,400 gallons of iced tea Friday.


This story has been corrected to show that Summerville plans to brew 2,400 gallons of sweet tea rather than 24,000 gallons.
