Official Tea Thread
« on: April 14, 2015, 03:48:48 PM »
I like to brew my iced tea using my Mr. Coffee brand Iced Tea Maker (I have one at home and one at work).

Also, I hate those fake "iced teas" that are not really brewed that some restaurants have.  :Yuck: I don't even know how they make them - from a chowder or something?

Sometimes Gooch buys some kind of already made iced tea in a jug and wastes the iced tea space in our refrigerator - but that stuff is not good.

I like the idea of sun tea, but why waste all that time when you can just brew it up in your Mr. Coffee Brand Iced Tea Maker?

I have a huge cup (KSU 3peat trophy cup from a bb game a few yrs ago).  Fill it up with cold water, add a family size bag of cold brew lipton, wait like 5 min, pound good tea, repeat like 3 times a work day.

I prefer my iced tea more like slightly cooler than room temp tea.

Someone told me recently that I drink an usually large amount of iced tea. He doesn't even know that I drink 1-2 cups of hot tea plus 2-5 glasses of iced tea per day at work.

I like sweet tea but I try to drink mostly unsweetened while at work (except the hot tea which must have milk and sweetener).

Sweet tea is the worst.  I hate that it is starting to become prevalent in KC.  I can't tell you how many times, last summer, that I stopped at a fast food place just to get a tea and ended up with a sweet tea.

"Unsweetened" sounds a lot like "Sweetened" through a shitty mic.

It's like sweet tea is the new standard.  Ugh.

I drink a lot of hot Oolong and Earl Grey.  Also, Tazo has a really good Sweet Orange tea that is mild and delish.

OK, this can be just a tea thread now (not limited to Iced).

I love a good Chai Tea Latte.

I enjoy both iced and hot tea, but sweet tea can GTFOOMF. I don't usually take the time to make my own, but after Mrs. Gooch's ringing endorsement for a Mr. Coffee Brand Iced Tea Maker I will look into.

Pure Leaf is my go to brand, but every once in a while I will go for Gold Peak.

Only when I have a sore throat or I am trying to make a homemade Chai Latte. If you look at my #lunchack pics you might see the bear in the background.

clams' tea factoid:  all of the different types of tea (oolong, white, green, earl grey, etc) come from the same tea leaf/plant


back when i was addicted to all of the vices that life has to offer, i drank this tea-  it's pretty good.  fortunately i can now control my former addiction to caffeine but i don't really judge the poor slobs that can't because they have shitty genes and are to be felt sorry for, not mocked.
would recommend-

tea (milk, .5/.5 or cream and sugar) non stop like a crack fiend in the winter.  switch to almost all coffee in warmer weather.  ice tea anytime i find it for sale, but i never brew my own.  i prefer sugar or lemonade mixed in, but unsweetened is ok.  sweet tea would be fine if it was just sweetened tea, but it's like teaed sugar or something.

Sweet Tea is amazing. Iced Tea is pretty good. Sometimes I'll do a 1/2 cut of both to get the best out of both worlds. Green Tea? Gross.  :Yuck:

i found while vacationing in the south that iced tea is sweet tea there. you must specify you want unsweetened or the toothless waiter will bring the gross sweet stuff.

I don't make it myself, but it's my go to drink at restaurants and some fast food (lots have super gross tea tho). Mostly unsweetened, but sometimes I'll put in a packet of sweet-n-low.

McDonald's unsweet is about the best tho.

I'm interested in this Mr coffee iced tea maker...
