When I lived in Texas sweet tea wasn't as prevalent as I thought it'd be. Isn't it more common in the Deep South?

In Louisiana we used to say making ice tea was the craziest thing people did . You heat it up to make it hot then you put ice in it to make it cold then you put sugar in it to make it sweet then you put lemons in it to make it sour

After a strenuous sabbatical, one needs to ease into summer vacation.

Funny, when I was in Seoul last February that's exactly how everybody was dressed.

Business. Managed a bit of sight-seeing as well, but did a bit less random strolling around than I usually do in foreign cities because Seoul is hella cold in February for a California boy like me.

It's definitely "sweet tea" here in Georgia, and it has been my entire life. My father's generation also calls it sweet tea, and they're all born-and-raised-in-the-country Georgians (for reference, my dad's about 10 years younger than you).

That said, I suspect "tea" and "sweet tea" were probably more interchangeable, or synonymous, back in the day than they might be now, especially in the more urban parts of our fair Dixie. I'd guess you'd be much more likely to hear "sweet or unsweet" if you asked for "tea" in, say, Atlanta now than you would have been in 1970.

When I was in Austin last year, I accidentally took some of the sweet tea instead of Yankee tea. My pancreas still hasn't recovered.

@MrG Gotcha it is more  a regional thing than. I just had never run across it until just recently. I was in a restaurant in Bangkok Thailand ,way back when ,that had Louisiana prawns on the menu . I asked the waiter' what the hell is a prawn .I'm from louisiana and I never heard of a prawn"

I don't like "unsweet". Can't we just say "unsweetened " like we're supposed to? It is actually only slightly longer to say.

For a long time I thought servers all were saying unsweetened and just clipping their words a little bit, but no - they actually say unsweet 😕
post #55123 of 57842
I've never heard "unsweet" in my whole life hope it stays that way.
post #55124 of 57842
No, it's "unsweet," because it's "sweet" tea, not "sweetened" tea.

Maybe in the south. Everywhere else it's just word salad
