Most restaurants in modern times in the deep south offer both sweet and unsweet tea. Since I drink mostly unsweet (borderline diabetic) I have never had any problem getting it. The server always ask "Sweet or unsweet?"

I think the Sweet Tea line is no longer applicable. Within the past ten years, sweet tea has spread far beyond the confines of the South.

Very true...and I have been to restaurants in the South that didn't even have sweet tea - only unsweet.

stlouisan - I definitely agree, I have found sweet tea in areas for outside of the South.

I remember when I went to Mother's Restaurant in NOLA the last time I was there. They told me they didn't have sweet tea and I almost fell out my chair, lol.

The quality is usually higher in the South (particularly the Deep South).

CD has a fascination with the South...I wonder why we never see post about "Where is the North" or "Where is the West" as much as we see post about Southern culture.

So, where is the West?

Also, where does the Midwest and Northeast break?

Is the Midwest a single region or several?

I think it's because the disputed Southern region is so vast and diverse in culture. When people think of Norteast, they obviously think of NY, CT, NJ, RI, and all those states above those. But the south is weird, the border isn't a solid state border, it's more of a regional border that flows unevenly through different areas of different states.
