One year we travelled to the SW region. Not an area for tea. Right outside of the Grand Canyon there is a McDonald's. I bought a tea there. I think that they thought that tea meant brown colored water because that was what it tasted like. Southern California was pretty much the same way.
We currently live in Texas. I thought that they could do a great glass of sweet tea. Well, I find that they are about 50/50. Some places know how to make it, others are too weak to be classified as tea. I was born in Texas and have lived here off and on over the years. I didn't realize that they had a problem with sweet tea, but I was a Dr. Pepper fan at the time and they did carry that at most places.
It wasn't until I moved to South Carolina that I developed this addiction to strong, sweet iced tea. Most places in South Carolina know how to do it. However, if you want unsweetened tea it might be hard to find.
In our small town we have some favorite restaurants we like to visit. One of our favorites is San Jose. I would have posted a picture of the bean and cheese dip if it hadn't been devoured so quickly. Mmmmmm......................
We didn't just visit South Carolina to eat (although we did a lot of it). We got to see Tasha.
Tasha is up to the task.
