Iced Tea Tour
In honor of National Iced Tea Month, the Charlotte Observer is doing a virtual Tea Tour. The series runs through June and takes a look at some of the best places to get iced tea, presumably in the Charlotte area.
The first installment in the series ran Monday and took a look at an establishment called Bojangles. As drive-thru tea was featured, I'm going to guess that maybe this is a fast food type place or perhaps an old-style drive-in.
Installment two ran yesterday and takes a look at a place called Showmar's, who claim to sell in the neighborhood of 6,000 iced teas per day. Owner George Couchell offers his tips on brewing iced tea, but keep in mind that this is the South, where iced tea - by default - means sweet tea.
