wow...sounds intense :)
being born and raised in the south we had sweet tea for breakfast lunch and dinner and snacks. It was all I knew to drink until I moved from there in my early 20's.
Imagine my sheer horor when I realized that not everyone served Sweet tea and if they did it was usually the instant kind... BLASPHEMY I tell you!!
So now living in Ohio, I seek out those establishments that serve REAL sweet tea and that's where I go to eat.
