Uh huh...I'll make a note of that...No sweet 'tater pie or peach cobbler for you...

What I got from that is that non-Anglo native Texans whose families go back for generations don't necessarily drink fresh home-brewed sweet tea? I don't think most urban Texans do either, so maybe your sweet tea drinking-observations should be limited to rural natives.

Could be, but I didn't see tea mentioned in the post, so hense the confusion over it. Anyway, this again is going to be something where one's own experience is the prevailing basis for the opinion. My own is that, urban or rural, most native Texans brew their tea sweet at home. Your experience and observations may be different, and that is fine too. Now, yes, there could be an anglo/non-anglo aspect to it as well. So if that was what texdav was saying, then yeah, it is a valid and interesting point...

I didn't get it either really. I was reaching. Maybe he'll be back to explain.
