Real Freshly Brewed Iced Tea
This is a suggestion for all restaurants as well as Cruise Ships. Please offer freshly brewed iced tea and not the stuff that comes from some sort of concentrate dispensed from the soda fountain. I know tha some folks don't mind the instant stuff, but to me it just isn't the real deal.
I ended up steeping a tea bag in a cup of hot water and then pouring it into a glas of ice, which works, but it would be nice if they had it available without the extra work.

Amen. They can do it here in the states even at small restaurants.

I'm an Ice Tea lover as well. Now a days when I travel I take along Lipton Cold Brew bags. Then if the Ice Tea is bad I just make my own with the ice water and my cold brew bags.

Bringing your own tea bags is a good idea, but it is just one more thing to remember to pack. I remember on celebrity, I actually looked forward to the butler bringing the cart around for the "elegant tea".

I was too cheap to by a soda card this last trip but I found the Princess iced tea horrible! I also used hot water in a cup to "brew" my own and pour it over ice. Thanks for the great idea of the Lipton cold brew bags. I will add that to my cruise packing list for next time!

There sure is nothing better than a tall glass of fresh brewed SWEET tea. I have found the further north we go these resturants just do not know that sugar does not dissolve in iced cold water let alone the fact that it is calld SWEET TEA! LOL
