Well............just figure out how many glasses you would get out of a gallon and then I would add 1 packet per glass. Just depends on how sweet you like it!

Hehe, being the non-mathmatical type, I'd just add it to each glass as needed.

Tylar Connor, How did the tea come out? I've never had luck making it with granular splenda. It has always come out bitter or wierd tasting. I'm from Georgia and like my tea nice and sweet, so maybe I was using too much and it became bitter.
I'd like to know if it came out good with the 18 packets!

I only did 12...i was worried it would come out to sweet....maybe a few more would be ok but i think it 18 would make it way to sweet for me. When you try again, let me know how it comes out

Tylar when I make it with 18 it is not near as sweet as you get in Southern restuarants. I just was south for vacation and had sweet tea in several locations.

When I make tea I mix Splenda and Stevia with it. That helps it taste sweeter than just the Splenda by itself.

Yes Jane I did visit The Lady and Sons and also took a Paula Deen cooking class. It was amazing. Not a lot of cooking, but lots of stories and talking, Bubba was there and Jamie and Bobby and her husband Michael. Also her Executive producer Gordon Elliott too. It was sooo much fun. The Lady and sons was delicious, but not low carb. LOL

Southerner here!

[COLOR=Red]I have been making tea with Splenda for years....I buy the big bags of granular splenda not the individual packs.....I use a cup of splenda for a gallon of tea.....before LC I used a cup of sugar for my regular gallons-whether it was brewed or sun tea......[/COLOR]
