Interesting reading about the sweet tea line. I know that in northern and central WV, McDonald's didn't serve sweet tea until it went nationwide in 2008. Many of the local non-chain restaurants still serve unsweet tea.

What I would call 'native Maryland restaurants' - meaning family owned restaurants and chains based in Maryland, almost always have both sweet and unsweet tea, but sometimes only sweet. Probably when people ask for sweet tea in Maryland the only reason they can't get it is because it's just called 'tea' or 'iced tea'. It's generally assumed to be sweet unless requested otherwise.

If you have a "Southern state of mind", I guess the South can be anywhere! God bless.

-Virginia (excluding NOVA ******* suburbs) **As a virginian...notice my discontent for this portion even being considered apart of my state**
-North Carolina (excluding research triangle)
-South Carolina
-Tennessee
-Kentucky (excluding Northern KY...cincy suburbs)
-Georgia
-Florida (excluding Orlando and south)
-Alabama
-Mississippi
-Arkansas
-Louisiana (excluding New Orleans to some degree)
-Texas (excluding the panhandle and west Texas)

STATES WITH SOUTHERN SECTIONS:
-Missouri Bootheel
-Southern Maryland

This seems to be the most comprehensive list I can make based on what i've seen in this thread. Does anyone have any quarrells?
You forgot West Virginia, but people usually do.

By the way, the Sweet Tea Map is totally bogus, the guy made it all up for a college course, he admitted it years ago but never removed the map.

I didn't even notice it was missing. Poor West Virginia.
Adding the southern two thirds of West Virginia would make wnewberry's statement fairly unarguable.

Yes, I also think it's a shame that he keeps the map on his website without a disclaimer. The only maps I would generally trust are government, institutional or academic maps, though even there you should look carefully. I'm especially amused by some scientific maps that track things like insect infestations or plant growth and it appears that the bugs and shrubs are observing state lines.
