It's An Iced Tea Day

Sweet Iced Tea (Macro) (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two years old." ~ On Moving To The South
"Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea." ~ Henry Fielding (1707-1754), British novelist
It's hot as blue blazes and sultry, so humid you start sweating just steppin' out of the house. It's the kind of day that has "bad hair" and "limp clothes" written all over it. There is no breeze. The skies are gray. The rain you thought would cool things down only pushed the humidity even higher. Even the dog wants to lay on the cool concrete in the shade and not move.

It's an iced tea day. Not just any iced tea, but sweet iced tea with a touch of lemon and lots of ice. You can't find this in the North; they only offer unsweet tea. You can't find it in Europe; they have unsweet tea but only one cube of ice at most. Only in the South do menus include both and waitresses routinely ask as you order "iced tea", "Sweet or Unsweet?" Make mine sweet, please.
