    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.

          HongKong milk tea, yummy.
          We're sorry, the voices in my head are not available at this time. Please try back again soon.

            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:

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

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

                          ACK!

                            Yeah, I consider UHT to be an absolute abomination...

                              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.
