Southern Tea - 22 JAN 2008

At lunch today I asked, “What kind of hot tea do you have?” The answer, “Regular Tea.” At three different places I’ve gotten the same answer…now I finally get it. In the South, there are two kinds of cold tea: Sweeten and Not Sweeten; and, one kind of hot tea: Regular Tea. 
They do not have Green, Black, Oolong or White. They do not have Orange Pekoe, Earl Grey, Herbal or Chai. They do not have Lipton, Farmers Brothers, Tetley or de-caf…they have Regular Tea!
