But they always miss the key point, you gotta add the simple sugar in while the tea is brewing and therefore still hot, otherwise it just settles in the bottom and doesn't mix. If you surveyed local restaurants you'd be surprised how many of them have sweet tea urns with collectively thousands of dollars of sugar going to waste sitting in the bottom of the urn while you and I sit out front complaining how close to unsweet the sweet tea is. Unless you're talking about Hooters, and then those maniacs are just trying to all give us the diabeetus. Just one reason I wont' go there anymore.
Mostly it's just one of my pet peeves from bygone years bartending and dealing with often brain dead useless wait staff.
I'm from the South and just joking with you because I am bored with work.
Waxhaw ain't Chapel Hill.....lol and that dental school didn't start until 1950 no matter how old the building it is housed in is.
I'd say they can't get it right because it's literally just sugar water and a waste of tea and they don't care? The word's tea connoisseurs would look at southerners destroying tea and say "why can't they get it right?"
