How do you like your Iced Tea/Coffee?

I have never been one to enjoy the sweet ice tea mixes, they are just too sweet for me and don't really taste like tea.

I prefer to make herbal teas (peppermint and the fruity ones are best) and pour it over ice with no sugar added. I just tried Red Tea Ice Tea for the first time and really enjoyed it.

How do you like your iced tea...or iced coffee...in the summer?

I like plain iced tea mostly...unsweetened....no additional flavors --- Sometimes a squeeze of lemon is good....Also like "Arnold Palmer's" ...A mixture of tea and lemonade...

Don't drink iced coffee....

Iced coffee, plain or once in awhile I like the sugar free chocolate syrup and some unswetened whipped cream..Nice treat, iced tea, unsweetened or occasionally with mango just lots of ice and some lemon most times.

Sweet Luzianne iced tea, no lemon. I prefer it with sugar but drink it with Splenda.

I also like various hot teas, including green tea, cinnamon & spice, and Constant Comment.

Hmm, one of our local restaurants serves that but they call it "Tea-ade". It is very refreshing.

For my ice tea I like it super cold with only a half packet of sweet-n-low.
For my coffee weather it be iced (which is nice for a treat once in a while) or hot, it's 2 level sugars and Land O' Lakes Half & Half. Can't stand milk or powdered creamers.

plain. coffee, hot and black. I like different types of teas, and like it hot or cold. I like iced hibiscus in the summer. amazing color.

p.s. i like half-n-half in my coffee, and if I am up early, preparing a turkey, etc, I like to throw in some gran marnier while watching the parade on Thanksgiving or New Years mornings...

Earl Grey, hot. (Before Picard was even a captain) with 1 tsp honey, one tsp sugar.

Iced tea, strong, with lemon, no sugar.

Green tea iced.
