    Sweet tea is the only tea I'll drink; the Southerners do it right

    Even then I really don't drink much/any tea.

    That wouldn't taste anything like sweet tea. And sweet tea often has a lower sugar content than soda.

    I never knew that what I grew up drinking was 'black' tea until I lived abroad. We just call it tea.

    You need to pour boiling water onto the tea to get the best from it. Then let it cool and drink it. Dont forget to take the teabag out in good time so your tea doesnt end up stewed.

    Also I think the 'warm' beer thing is a misnomer. Its not warm, its just not chilled. I hadnt had an ale in ages in NZ so I was excited to end up at a place serving speights ale. It took me a few sips to realise it tasted odd because it was chilled, thereby killing all the flavour

    Warm beer does have more flavor, but it sucks on a hot day. Give me some tasteless Ice colled Miller High life or Rolling rock over some hot guiness any day! Yuck!

    I don't like tea or coffee, but my wife drinks lots of tea. Tea is black and hot here by default. Iced tea is something you buy in a soda bottle or can.

    Plain black tea is good.
    Do not take anything I say seriously. It's just the Internet. It's not real life.

    Not entirely true, but then we don't yet experience the kind of sultry summers experienced in some states of the U.S. . Whittards of Chelsea sell a range of teas suitable for serving in an iced fashion:

    http://www.whittard.co.uk/instant_tea

    and also recommend which proper teas are ideal for serving as iced teas.

    In the summer I like Moroccan mint tea...

    How are the UHT "milk" companies still in business? I've never met anyone that likes it.

    in rio it's really the only thing you can get. i think people prefer it because it lasts longer.

    What's wrong with UHT? I buy Lithuanian milk (hello Saras) and it's great despite being UHT.

    It tastes cooked, without the common decency of being a pudding.

    I'm drinking a pretty good tea. It's green tea, rose hips, echinacea, and mint. I put a little lemon and honey in it and it's damn tasty.

    A man likes herbal tea and suddenly he's a peter puffer?

    Honestly, I drink tea as a more healthy alternative to soda. Even if you put honey in it the sugar levels are still only a fraction of soda pop plus you get vitamin C (from the lemon & rose hips), anti-oxidants, and probably a few other things from the herbs.

    I too drink all of the above. My apologies for any offence caused, just trying to wind up Dinner (Oerdin, change your damn name back!) and couldn't think of a better taunt at the time.

    Had a nice cup of matcha. A little goes a long way.

    I'd heard of green tea powder but never the Japanese name of matcha. Sounds good.

    It's very nice, its easy to control the strength. You can use it anything you would want that flavor in as well, like ice cream.
    "We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work...After eight years of this Administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started... And an enormous debt to boot!" Henry Morgenthau, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Treasury secretary, 1941.
