California tea...also know as Arnold Palmer, is one of my favorite warm weather beverages. I've always ordered it as an Arnold Palmer, but the other day I was watching the Food Network, I'm a little bit addicted to that channel, and they were making California tea. I thought this was funny, being that I'm from California and I always order this and when I went to lunch with my friend the other day they looked at me and laughed when I ordered it. To which I said, "what?" and they're reply was, "you're the only person I know who orders that, must be a California thing." Sometimes it takes other people pointing things out for them to come our attention. link to the recipe. If you want to order it from Starbucks, it's called a Black Tea Lemonade (BTL) and you can get it sweetened or unsweetened. You can also get the lemonade mixed with green tea or passion tea. Makes me think of when I was a kid, my grandma would make sun tea, which is when she'd take a clear glass container and fill it with water and put all the tea bags in and set it in the sun and let the sun heat the water. I always thought this was the coolest idea. I'm not sure if this is a mid-west thing.
