I'm on vacation in South Carolina and it's hot! So hot that I'm constantly drinking to keep from getting dehydrated. Growing up in the South, I know that constantly drinking cold liquids is the key to staying sane — and my favorite is of course iced tea.
I'll drink any iced tea, I love it all. My favorite is straight up, no frills sweet tea with a wedge of orange. I've made it every way imaginable and as I've gotten older I've broadened my horizons by using different teas. Try experimenting, but don't ever forget the basics!
