Did you know Canada.. I was surprised to read 97% of tea in Canada is consumed hot while in the United States, 85% of tea is served iced.
I know many people that drink a lot of iced tea but, as we know, in Canada iced tea refers to sweetened iced tea, usually flavoured with lemon. In most provinces, unsweetened iced tea is almost unheard of. This tea is made at home from drink powder or obtained in cans or bottles. Water, sugar and flavourings may exceed tea in terms of quantity in these drinks.
Personally I only like unsweetened iced tea - though I know of no where in Canada that serves in that way. I have to admit it's one of my favourite things to order in a restaurant when we visit the States.
I also make iced tea at home, usually only in the summer months but like most Canadians I usually drink my tea hot, I actually have one every morning.
So Canada - how do you like your tea?
