 Being a Southerner, sweetened iced tea is a way of life and people look at you like you have two heads if you ask for hot tea, lol, but I still do enjoy hot tea in the winter or when I'm sick or something, usually something with honey and lemon in it.

How about you? Is your tea usually hot or cold? Do you like it sweetened or unsweetened?

I drink both. I love ice tea, my family lives in North Carolina, and is a tea drinking family. You kill the tea, you make some more. I usually ask for unsweetened and then add my own sweetener that's not as strong.

I love hot tea. I usually just put honey in it, but sometimes Ill add just a splash of milk or cream.

I love green tea, usually cold and sweetened with a touch of sugar.

I love hot tea, rooibos red tea is my favorite. I add almond milk to it.

  Hot tea, no milk and some sugar in the winter, decaf and chai in the evening.Can't take the hot stuff (except my morning coffee) when the weather warms up,though. Then it's ice cold green tea for me !              Btw, I got used to drinking tea without milk 'cause I never got a chance to sit down and drink a hot cuppa' when the kids were younger and without milk it still tastes okay !cat

Quoting Lauren486:

If you asked me a few years ago, I would have definitely said iced tea, unsweetened. But then I moved to Great Britain. While I do occasionally miss the existence of iced tea, I have grown to love a good cuppa too.  If it is standard every day tea, I like it with a splash of milk and 1 sugar.  Otherwise, most teas have serving recommendations on the package and I usually stick to those. 

After being in Ehgland 3 years that's how I drink a good cuppa.  In the states it goog old fashioned sweet tea, with a sprig of mint.
