Sweet Tea is a good thing. There really isn’t much to say about, except that it is, truly, a good thing. What it is, exactly, is iced black tea that is brewed in sweetened water. But for some reason, it’s more. As with most things related to slow-moving, entirely good-for-you culture, Sweet Tea originated in the South and has consequently made it’s way up to the Midwest, mostly through the golden arches of McDonald’s. If there is a reason to go to McDonalds, it’s for the Large Sweet Tea for $1.00.
Sweet Tea is what you’d drink on your porch, in 100-degree weather, sitting around in as little clothes as possible. In the South, of course. Maybe with a cigar, maybe with something fried. Overlooking a plantation—or at least a field—if you’re feeling ambitious. But it’d be just fine by itself. It’d be great by itself.
