    Pull up a chair:

    The perfect sip


    We have always been known for our sweet tea. When your roots are in the South, it’s not only a drink, it’s a culture. We have worked tirelessly over the years to create the perfect sip.

    At McAlister's® our tea is freshly brewed all throughout the day. Starting with steaming-hot filtered water, our tea is steeped from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ premium tea leaves, sweetened to perfection with pure cane sugar and poured over our special, crystal-clear ice into a whopping 32 ounce glass. Garnished with an over-sized lemon wedge and served up with our iconic extra-wide red straw, our famous sweet tea will quench even the hardest earned thirst.

    McAlister's Tea

    People often wonder why we keep our tea behind the counter. This is by design, so that our brew masters can always make sure that your cup is filled correctly: the perfect amount of tea, the perfect amount of ice, the perfect amount of care. We have this ratio down to a science, and we take it very seriously. But not to worry, we delight in getting that glass refilled for you as many times as you'd like, and more often than not, before you even have to ask.

    That’s just the McAlister’s way.
