Awesome!  Now get to work on sun tea.   Wink

My wife and I were just discussing iced tea last night.  Her mother is English (from Yarmouth) and despised the concept of iced tea when she got to America.  I've never heard her complain so I assume at some point in the last 50 years she's gotten used to it.

Myself, I grew up on it.  There were only ever three things to drink in my house as a kid.  Water, milk (which I never saw anyone in my family drink from a cup... it was simply used to pour over cereal) and iced tea.  My dad was a firm believer in 'soda is for mixing with whisky' and as such was not appropriate for children.  I hear iced tea is still pretty unpopular in the UK.  Is that still the case or are attitudes softening?

No, Vlad, attitudes are not softening (not that I can see).

I drink hot tea all day long. The Dutch seem to like iced tea, but then they know nothing about tea.

Iced tea is not a thing. There is tea, and there are abominations. It's really quite simple.

Maybe it's growing up in an area that averages 20c in the winter and around 40c in the summer I was never very fond of ANY hot drinks.

Outside of water or soda, what is the preferred cold drink in the UK?

I have come to learn that adding milk is an abomination to tea...

I like a mix of black Ceylon and a little Earl Grey, but not for my morning cuppa, which is just black tea with no shit mixed in.

The Dutch make atrocious tea. First the water is not boiling, secondly they offer you a huge selection of fancy fruit and spice teas, which I never touch. Then they giggle when they see me put lots of milk in my tea.  Roll Eyes

Hot tea is the perfect refreshment on a hot day.  Tiny splssh of milk, no sugar.  Or, black,  teaspoon sugar, slice of kemon.  Ised tea is also a splendid thing.  Doen't work with teabags though, that's when it tastes stewed.  I always use loose tea, make it a bit weaker than usual, filter out the grouts, stir in sugar to taste, put in fridge, when cold add  lemon juice and (little bit of magic here) a generous slug of Archer's Peach Schapps.  Serve over ice with a sprig of fresh mint if you like.
Mind you, a good shot of Strathmill over ice (stop shuddering, Myky, it's allowed with Strathmill) is nice too.

Ice tea is the work of El Diablo. No different than steaming hot beer.


....although, I used to feel the same about iced coffee. What kind of freak drinks iced coffee? Then when I was in Las Vegas a few years ago, I was fueling up to hit the road. I needed a coffee badly, but it was already 98F at 7 in the morning. I grabbed an iced latte and fell in love. Though I still think that black coffee is gross when cold. It has to have some cream and flavoring in it. Ironically, I think that cream and flavoring in hot coffee is the work of El Diablo.

I actually love iced coffee too.  Hell, I don't even mind it when my regular coffee just gets cold.

OK... so let's pretend it's a Monday in England... I'm at a restaurant and I want a cold drink with my lunch but I'm WAAAAAY too hungover for anything with alcohol in it (until at least 4pm.)  What is the least offensive thing to order? I don't really go for soda.  My go-to cold drink is iced tea.   Hell, a good hangover breakfast for me is eggs, toast, iced tea and a coffee.

A PRIME hangover breakfast is a quesadilla with tapatio and a jamaica... but I'm not getting that outside of California.
