Wow look at all the plain Jane's on here! Must be none of our southern friends have chimed in yet.
I should have made a both answer - my tastes change depending on the day.
I like good ole plain sun tea. No fancy recipe there.
In summer, everyday it's a fresh 1/2 gallon. I've tried sun tea, but I find bringing the water to a boil opens the tea leaves and the flavor is better. 2 family size black tea bags, 2 family size green tea bags. I use my old pyrex coffee 8 cup coffee pot, fill it 3/4 full, bring to a boil, add the tea bags and boil about 1 minute, turn it off and steep for about 3 to 5 minutes. Take out the bags and put into the pot lid. Pour the tea through a coffee strainer (in case a bag broke) add sugar or sweetner to the hot tea in the jar. Take the tea bags from the lid and put back into the pot, add cold water, enough to fill the 1/2 gallon jar. Squeeze out the tea bags and pour the tea into the jar. Let it cool and refrigerate. When ready to serve, we like Arnold Palmers. I make frozen lemonade and add some to the glass of ice before filling with the tea.
omamcm we like Arnold Palmers.
My husband loves those. Orders them out regularly.
Originally from Michigan, I grew up drinking regular ice tea.
When I moved to Florida 30 years ago, it became sweet tea. However, soon sweet tea became too sweet for our liking. We changed--1/2 and 1/2 is our choice (1/2 plain, 1/2 sweet). This is a very popular way to drink ice tea among my co-workers and friends, and although it is not often on a resturant menu, all you have to do is ask for it.
Omamcm, Arnold Palmer's are also popular down here.
cooktocooksweet tea became too sweet
When McDonalds came out with their sweet tea a couple years ago I thought I'd give it a try - set my teeth on edge it was so sweet! Wow!
Maybe it's the Brit in me coming out, but I cannot stand the stuff
If I'm going to have tea, let it be hot, with milk, no sugar and weak
I love ice tea, but only drink decaf. What I do is brew green tea bags then when it's cooled down put it in a pitcher. I then put lemon wedges in the tube in the middle of the pitcher.
Well, I am from the south or maybe southwest. Anyway, I love my tea plain. I will drink peach tea on occasion but not sweet tea (tea with sugar) - ick. I drink my plain tea anywhere up to 4 pm and then quit if I am going to sleep at night. If I fix it at home, I use decaf tea. It is nearly impossible to find just plain tea in South Carolina. We've been twice and each time it is the same. No plain tea.
