OK, so today is a sad day for good tea practices.
Just a disclaimer, I’m a true Southerner and Iced Tea means supersaturated with sugar with a viscosity akin to motor oil.
As far as the preeminent fast food chain’s version of sweet tea goes, it’s spot on. I actually find myself getting it whenever I’m there, whereas I don’t even consider getting tea at any other fast food chain. Maybe it’s marketing, maybe it’s in my head, but it’s pretty good.
It’s not complex, not breathtaking, but a pretty accurate take on the Southern Tradition. Unfortunately, I don’t really appreciate the use of High Fructose Corn Syrup in stead of good ol’ Sucrose, but you can’t really tell.
Now if only I can find a way to get back to drinking good tea…
