Ani, you need to get an insulated cup for your tea. It works just as well for iced tea as for hot tea. I use mine all year long and it barely sweats in the summer.

ya, I knew that. Just jerking your chains. My MIL always makes it sweetened so I never have any at her house. I only like it unsweetened mixed with lemonade.

Surely you jest?

Iced tea without sugar is not proper Iced Tea. It is something else, entirely. Not sure what, either.

I try not to think about such things. Just rattles my brain too much.

That is an excellent idea. And you know . . . my family keeps giving me these nice insulated cups.

One is kinda naughty and says "HOT STUFF" all over it and has pink kisses in between the words . . .

But I keep using the stadium cups, cause that is how I have been doing it for 40 years. And you know what they say about us old Southern gals.

We just do things a certain way cause that's the way old Southern gals are supposed to do things, LOL!!!!!
