In my 1st year at college, I didn't have a fridge, but at least in winter, I just kept a small bottle of milk in the window.I hate coffee and only drink tea. I dont have milk in my room bc I dont have a fridge, stupid rules, or honey, or sugar, so I have grown accustomed to drinking tea straight. I like it and it is probably the best way to "get the flavor" as you say.
Yep, in Alabama its sweet tea, or if you are diabetic unsweet but its all iced with lemon for some. I like lemon with mine or even a splach of OJ. But there are some who think the sweeter the better which to me is not good. It has to be balanced it is hard to beat a nice glass of freshly brewed iced tea on a hot summer day.that's the truth, for any non-texans out there (holds true in Alabama as well)
