You can not get a proper cup of tea in any restaurant/cafe etc.. in the US.
There is a reason why.
The water used to make tea is drawn from the coffee machine.
Coffee machines do not have boiling water.
Coffee is ideally brewed at 190 deg F.
All coffee machine are set to dispense water at 190 deg F.
Tea should be made with boiling
water , 212 deg F.
I have 2 cups of coffee in the morning when I get up.
I drink iced tea ( I know, sacrilege) with lunch.
Between 5 and 7 pm I drink a cup or two of proper tea.
After that I switch to whiskey.
My siblings send me the tea from Ireland.
I don't use sugar in my tea or coffee.
and I freshly grind the coffee beans immediately before brewing each cup (filter method).
