I didn't want to start a whole new thread in the knowledge exchange folder, so I hope it's ok to put it here.
When posters mention the food and drink they're supplying for a party, I see "Iced Tea" a bit.
The iced tea we have here (Aust) is brown, and very sweet - it really doesn't taste like cold black tea at all. Is that the case in the US? Or is it a packet mix? Just cold black tea?
Also, when we were in Hawaii, DH asked at a cafe for a "iced coffee" - and got chilled black coffee with iced cubes. Is this usual? Ice/d Coffee here is a milk drink mildly flavoured with coffee, sold in cartons, or, at a cafe you'd get a fancy glass, with maybe some ice cream/cream on top.
