Tea on Tuesday
In my former life as a Yankee, iced tea was always Lipton, or something similar. Always kind of bland, but good, nonetheless.All you had to do was add water and ice, and you were good to go!
After crossing the Mason Dixon line for the last time 25 years ago, I became a full fledged southerner, and "sweet tea" became a passion!!
I had always heard of sweet tea, but had never really had any, other than Lipton with way too much sugar poured in it!! While living on the west coast, I discovered "sun tea", but that, too, was a derivative of Lipton, just made outside in a big jar!!!!
The husband and I ate lunch at the local diner today, and "sweetea" it was! It is even pronounced like a single word!
"Sweet tea" is a tea unto itself. It welcomes you home, soothes the soul, and it oozes southern hospitality with each sip...........
