About Moonshine Sweet Tea
Moonshine Sweet Tea started in 1946 out in the Texas Hill Country, in the small town of Mason, Texas, by Leo Cobb Porter: the great grand-dad of Joele Porter. Moonshine’s style of bold sweet tea uses the same secret family recipe that Leo Cobb Porter perfected in his own home, almost 70 years ago. Moonshine Sweet Tea has been brewing the finest sweet tea in the state for more than seven decades. The mission to make a much sweeter and more robust tea started with late night brewing, earning this “outlaw brew” its name way back then.
Today Moonshine is still brewed, one kettle at a time giving it the highest quality and best taste. The only ingredients are hand-picked black tea leaves, clean filtered water and 100% cane sugar. Nothing else. Founder Leo Cobb Porter’s great grandson still puts his seal of approval on every batch of this non-alcoholic Moonshine. You’ll taste the difference.
