I originally started with Southern Sweet Iced Tea but I tweaked it a bunch to lower the calories. I'd been using turbinado sugar the whole time and didn't realize that it made such a difference. When we ran out I tried organic sugar and brown sugar but hubby kept saying it wasn't right.Turbinado is raw cane sugar. You may also find it under the name "raw sugar".Here is a definition that I found at http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-turbinado-sugar.htmTurbinado sugar is a delicious alternative to table sugar. Unlike typical granulated sugar, Turbinado sugar crystals are much larger, and are made at an earlier period in the sugar cane processing method. It retains some of the flavor of molasses, a natural byproduct of the sugar process, which makes it a desirable addition to tea or coffee.The first pressing of the sugar cane yields Turbinado sugar. It looks notably different from granulated sugar because it has much larger crystals and is golden to brown in color. It also is considered by some to be “healthier” since it receives less processing than does white sugar.
