We aren't England or China, for God's sake. We are America and we buy diabetes-inducing giant sodas and like it.

Good tea is good.
Lipton tea bags are utter shiate. No wonder no one orders it.

So on my first trip to Scotland in the late 1900s I ordered lunch in a restaurant and the server asked what I wanted to drink.
A large iced tea, please.
Å what?
A large iced tea, please.
You want ice? In your tea?
Yes. Large. Please.
And I held up my hands to indicate what "large" meant, because I wasn't so certain about the whole English situation. A moment later she brought me a giant, soup bowl-sized mug of steaming hot tea with three dying ice cubes twirling away to their molten liquid doom.

It's Scotland. Should've stuck with booze.

Also your story gave me a mental image of Gollum falling backwards into your tea while ecstatically clutching an ice cube.

In the 1990s, I once ordered and received an iced coffee at the McDonalds drive through in Hampden, Baltimore, Maryland.  The receipt said "Lemonade with Meat".

/also late 1900s

My mom orders it and asks them for the bag on the side then throws it away and uses her own tea bag, or at least she used to, now that she's a senior I think she's just asks them to fill her tea mug with hot water for free =)

> "We sold a hot tea the other day. No one knew how to make it," one top commenter wrote. "We had to get the [general manager] to help us."

I read some of the Fox comments.
A lot of them are ragging on the dumb kids working at McDonalds who want $15/hr but can't figure out how to make tea.

I think the real issues were
- where is the tea kept? Is it in bags or concentrate?
- what type and size cup is supposed to be used?
- where do you get the hot water?

I'm sure the place had definite rules to be followed but nobody knew them.

I find it hilarious that Fox is suddenly being overly journalistically cautious.

Semi-related. I cannot stand sweet tea. I order unsweet and put some sugar in it. If this causes them to kill my unsweet tea, I will riot. and since I don't drink sweet tea, I won't need a hoverround to do it

Sweet tea is literally unsweetened tea with sugar added...

The difference is the volume of sugar.

I'll put maybe two or three packets in a large unsweet tea which has zero pre-existing sugar in it..

A large sweet tea has the equivalent of 12-15  packets in it.

Or you could use Splenda. I mean, you do you, but diabeetus people like sweet tea also. I don't think they'll be taking away your tea anytime soon.

Being tea bagged and making tea bags are not the same.

I'm with you here. If I have the option, which is rarely, I'll mix unsweet and sweet iced tea about 70-30 from the dispenser (which is one of Subway's redeeming qualities imo, as long as I don't think about how and how often the dispensers are cleaned). If it's not self-serve I just drink the unsweet because I've given up trying to get sugar packets to dissolve amidst the ice cubes.

One of my jobs in Silicon Valley had free iced tea in the soda machines, BUT only the tea with lemon and sugar was free, tea without lemon cost a quarter.

True heretics drink iced coffee.

I like iced coffee, but a lot of places, when you order iced coffee, you get iced sweetened cream/milk with flavoring syrup and a little bit of coffee for color.

I worked there in high school.  It's just hot water from the coffee machine and a tea bag.  It was rarely ordered.

Nobody ordered the McLean either.

The trick with the McLean was that you had to spin it in.

I could shoot myself in the neck too. I never would and consider the thought awful, but I could.

Some even said hot tea sold better than hot chocolate, Americanos or certain food items.

I can't decide whether I trust McDonalds less to make tea or an Americano.

If you need to add sugar to your tea or coffee, you're buying bad tea or coffee and/or preparing it poorly.
Or you're English.

i wonder how stale the teabags they keep for hot tea are.........

Not surprised. Most Americans who drink it even brew tea wrong at home.

/Here's a hint, you don't make it in the microwave
 
2021-10-21 7:05:19 PM  
Bad tea is still better than water and if you don't feel like soda it's the only option.

I get unsweetened iced tea all the time and hope it stays around.

Funny you say that because the three people at my last job that microwaved their hot tea were two Brits and a Scot. Everyone else used the hot water from the coffee maker.
