I live in the south. "tea" usually means iced tea, even in 2018. hot tea waxes and wanes in popularity...iced tea is forever.

do y'all do iced tea where you live? I made my own today. 1st up was Early Gray, which...btw...I find much tastier iced than hot, just sayin'. Then green tea...super strong brew, sugar, pour over ice, and...yes. good times, indeed.

after this, I"m thinking red/rooibos tea. it isn't really "tea," but..close enough.


so...are y'all doing iced tea? any favorites? Thanks. :)

Sounds nice but I can't stand tea in any form hot or cold. The rest of my family were big tea drinkers. I drink loads of coffee.

lemonade is good, too. they make that black tea+lemonade blend...its pretty good. not everyone is into tea. some people are so sensitive to caffeine that even the bit in tea sets the off. :-(

dunkin' donuts does frozen chocolate in the summer. looks...dense. sugar, cream, etc. probably a good once in a rare occasion treat.

I sometimes make mugicha, barley tea. Very popular in Japan during the summer. It's usually made as an ice tea, steeped right in the refrigerator. I actually enjoy it hot as well during the winter, in fact I make it more often that way. Everyone who tries it asks about it. The next time they come over they ask me if I'm making more barley tea.

Ha, I'm a tea snob and have 2 or 3 cups a day.
I like green tea and lemon grass. It's great hot or iced! Same with ginko tea!

i just whipped up a super strong cup of earl gray w/ sugar, iced it, and...oh man. good times.

I'm not the most southern southerner ever, but I"m seriously thinking about making some of my own iced tea, by the pitcher. probably better for me than soda or diet anything, so...yeah. there ya go...
