Iced Tea

We drink a lot of tea out here on the high plains.  One time I was flying on a first class upgrade across the Pacific.  They just kept coming around offering drinks… anything I wanted for free… and I kept requesting iced tea.  I don’t have a very strong accent, so when the steward finally shook his head and asked me if I was from Texas, I asked him if he heard it in my voice or if it was the iced tea.  He said he had been to Texas once, and he couldn’t believe how much tea those people drink.

I’m not from Texas… but close enough!  Not sure we would be surviving this summer without it!

    I remember being in the Northwest once and asking for iced tea. The only way we got it was by brewing a cup and then getting a glass of ice!!
