Hot tea? How barbaric. The most proper way to drink tea is iced in a tall
glass with a wedge of lemon (sweetening optional). Sweetened in a mason jar
is a decent variation. Iced tea is the only tea.
With Wade living in Boston he probably has no aversions to a good cold cup
of coffee. Iced coffee is big in New England IIRC. I usually drink coffee
cold without milk or sugar.
In my general disregard of social etiquette I really got some people roused
up in a Japanese restaurant once when after taking a couple sips of
unappealing sake I poured the rest into my soda. That tasted much better. I
wonder how sake tastes in fruit juice. Would mixing sake with soda or juice
be considered a faux pas in Japan?
