Its a regional drink. That's like me going to Atlanta and complaining about the lack of places that serve chocolate egg creams.

Yes, but you see...this is New York City. Not South Carolina. By and large, we don't think about sweet tea here in the city.

Maybe someone should start a chain of sweet tea stands around town, and see if they can turn New Yorkers on to it. Otherwise, well, you'll have to learn to do without. Or have a relative in SC ship huge containers of it to you.

Really. That's what I was thinking. I drink unsweetened iced tea and make it for myself in a pitcher. Boiling water and tea bags--not a difficult recipe. I imagine that for sweet tea you just dump a bag of sugar in.

Probably so. But once they move up to New York, they adopt the local mindset and prefer to complain.

Not to mention, how can that be good for your teeth?

Fat and sugar in everything are not your friends. Thank you, New York, for your briny, bitter, fast and funny drinks, eats, and personality!

(Just sayin it a little louder)

Seriously, I've been stuck in Texas for close to a year now and moving back home to NYC in the Spring.

I can't WAIT to be back in my UWS apartment and be away from all these backwood people!

A bag?

LOL, no, about a cup per gallon of tea.
