anyone tried mate (ma-tay?) i had been hearing wonderful things of it and they made it sound like a drug of some kind (you need a bowla (bong?) to drink (smoke?) it) but when i had it, it tasted just like plain old tea...

I live in the South. Our tea is sweet and iced, thanks. Best served with bar-b-q
Sweet tea isn't really tea at all. It's a conspiracy. In all reality, it's brown colored sugar water. Sometimes with lemon. If you can still taste the tea in the the South, then you haven't added enough sugar
Just tea. I don't care if it's Earl Grey, Black (which is actually green tea that's been cured), Green, flavored tea, real iced tea (meaning sweet tea), lemon, sugared, plain...you name it, I'll probably drink it (if it's really tea).
I do like a dab of honey in my tea...makes it so comfy feeling. What I fail to understand is how bagged tea can be considered tea at all. Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to get real tea leaves here in Yank-ville. God I hate it when we screw up something basic like tea. I really love drinking Turkish tea on a hot summer day...cools you down quick (after the initial rush of heat leaves your body).
Thanks guys, now I'm freaking thirsty. I'll have to wait for the tea until I get home. Oh, joy. Bagged tea...yum.
