Best Iced Tea?

251789_3136.jpgI love me some iced tea. Specifically, the unsweetened variety. Most of the time I’ll just take it plain with lemon, lime, or some fresh mint. The flavored stuff just doesn’t come off well. It either tastes synthetic, or overpowers the leaf. However, a recent visit to Salum changed all that. They do it right, with just a little spice that I couldn’t quite place. Go try it for yourself, and if you can place it (and replicate it), please pass it on—I’d love to make that at home.

And for the sweet tea lovers, I do get a hankering about once a year. Where do I go? Chicken Express. (The flying chicken logo is what makes it good.)

Where have you had a good (or bad) Iced Tea experience? Comment away.

  1. The best tea I have found at a restaurant in the DFW area is the mango tea at Piranha Sushi in Arlington.

  2. The Tea at Maguires is awesome. It’s probably plain ‘loe teatly but I can actually taste it when I think about. Yummy!

  3. Oh! This is my kinda thing – LOVE LOVE LOVE Eatzi’s Peach Mango. The mixture of the tea with their rockin’ crushed ice is good.

    Also for just me at home – I love mint in fresh iced tea.

  4. The coconut chai at Bengal Coast is better than it sounds. Not too overpowering with a nice vanilla undertone. It’s pretty refreshing.

  5. Barbec’s (nothing better after a long run at the lake)…and iced tea should NEVER be flavored!

  6. I love the Tea at Steel Restaurant and Lounge. It is a Mango Cinnamon Hibiscus. Very crisp with a citrusy edge.

  7. Lemon Mint at Kuai Dumplings (!!!)

    Whatever tea they’re serving at Marie Gabrielle–once I think it had a hint of pineapple

  8. Grew up drinking “Constant Comment” iced tea by Bigelow. Sweet or unsweet – its my favorite hands down. But…if you like it sweet, Southern tradition states that you _have_ to dissolve the sugar in boiling water first…don’t be trying to stir it in cold.

  9. The best tea around is at Rudy’s Mexican food in Irving. A small, mom and pop place but the tea is so good that people who have dined with me have asked if they could get to go cups for it!

  10. The best tea that I’ve had is at Celebrity Cafe & Bakery. They have a variety of teas to choose from, which I like because I don’t always want the same thing when I go.
