When it comes to ice tea which do you prefer sweet or unsweet tea??? I do not like unsweet tea. I so prefer sweet tea, I've had it since I was a kid when my mother made it for me. Now I make it for my kids. I find that sweet tea is more common in the south then in the north.

Eww...sorry but I can not stand sweet tea! I put a dash of milk in my hot tea and once in a while a bit of lemon in my iced tea. My oldest daughter loves sweet tea hot or cold, my oldest son likes his the same as I do.

I like sweetened Iced Tea too but it contains a lot of sugar which is not good. I stopped on my sweet tea intake and shifted to hot unsweetened tea instead. Unsweetened ones are healthier to drink.

Since quite along time,I have been drinking unsweetened tea. Though it is a necessary regimen to keep my diabetic condition at bay, I really enjoy it and feel that sugar actually spoils TEA.

I make sweetened tea, but I do not use sugar. I also do not to use artificial sweeteners. I use stevia, which is all-natural, and makes some of the sweetest tea ever. And, stevia does not affect glucose levels.

I like it both ways but I try to avoid sugar as much as I can so I usually have it very lightly sweetened or unsweetened. Ideally, I like it sweetened with Stevia because it's natural and low calorie.

I like sweetened tea, but I don't care for sugar. We use Splenda or one of the Equal knock offs to sweeten our tea. I do agree that sweet tea is a southern convention, I think its because its easier to sweeten it when its hot.

I like to make my own sweet tea so that's it tastes just right. I have done this for many years. My mom and dad used to make it while I was growing up. I think that's how I got started on it. I drink more sweet tea during the warmer months as well. I don't like drinking hot tea with or without sugar. Just never had the knack for it.
