I was feeling in a contrary mood and just expressed my opposition to the statement in the OP and the topic title. Just for the principle.

No, I was referring to the OP.

I don't like cream in tea except for Thai iced tea. I understand there is also Thai hot tea but I've never seen it on a menu nor tried it.

By far, the most refreshing thing on a hot day for me, some Arnold Palmer half & half.

I feel like I could drink it by the gallon. A perfect mix of tea, and lemonade, and no matter how I have made it from scratch, it just never seems to be the same.

The half Tea, and half Pink lemonade is a rare treat too.

TR it sounds worth trying. Are you saying the brand name is better than your own "from scratch" iced tea and lemonade? If so it looks like time to deconstruct/copycat the brand.

it's available everywhere from the local 7-11, to the local grocer. Like a nice Pilsner, the colder the better. Get one, if you like tea/lemonade, you will wonder where it has been your whole life.

I strongly avoid brand names for things I can make myself but TR I'll attempt to give it a try next time I'm in the market. One thing about being a foodie (me) you have to be willing to try stuff. If I like it we'll have to deconstruct/copycat it.

I am not sure if you have picked up on it yet, but I am a bit of a foodie too. . .I mean, I haven't partnered/owned/operated three restaurants, and cooked in 14 cities across 9 countries "just because".

And really, it's just a drink, I am not that vested in re-inventing the wheel, wen I can get it for $.99, and is pretty solid, but I certainly appreciate your enthusiasm. I am not retired, so I have bigger fish to fry.
