Tea-Boiled or Iced?:

Iced. You have more flavors available.

Are you sure? There's a very broad array of teas to choose from for your initial brewing.

And all tea is boiled, ice is added after the brewing.

Coffee.

Well, boiled, if I don't have an option.

Depends on the weather outside.

Sweet tea must be iced.

Green teas must be hot.

Boiled. The aroma is better, and it "makes eating easier".

...I wish I could find a better way to say that last line.
Ironically, as much as I love tea, I haaattteee coffee.

Hot tea goes better with food? Yeah, I think it does.

No way! Peach Tea all the way.

Boiled. It's easier to prepare. smile

You say boiled like it isn't the norm...

Obviously hot tea, iced tea is too sweet.
Also you don't really add milk to a iced tea.
By the powers invested in me by tabloid-reading imbeciles, I pronounce you guilty of paedophilia!
Hot tea isn't as common where I come from.

Besides, why would you make something so hot you can't drink it till it cools? Ice tea is superior. Cold, sweet, and you can put whatever fruit you want in it.

You're supposed to sip it slowly while blowing it...I'd like to see someone gulp down hot tea though.

As long as it's not someone I know, it will amuse me.

^I've done that. It was a mistake.

Iced. I don't really like hot drinks in general.

Oh My
BOILED. OMG YES. VERY STRONGLY BREWED GREEN TEA WITH NO SWEETENERS.

I like lots of iced teas as well. I love Thai iced tea and boba tea quite a bit. And iced Chai with lots of sugar is love...Sometimes I fancy cans of unsweetened green tea.

Boiled tea can also be used to make lattes like the London Fog.

Generally I prefer boiled tea. My favorite sort is genmaicha though I am also extremely partial to Earl Grey and roiboos.

Yes I dislike that unless I specifically ask for it to be sweetened or ask for a tea that is sweetened (like Thai iced tea, asking for that unsweetened would probably get you funny looks)...Thankfully no restaurants and shops I go to do this. It's a problem I have had with family and friends though.

Hot tea in the morning and in the winter, iced (NOT ICE!) tea in the summer afternoons. And black. If anything added, milk. Or maybe lemonade (it's better than it sounds, trust me).

Try Pineapple juice. It's even better.

Both hot and cold are fine ways to enjoy tea.

Putting milk in it is an abomination unto THE LAWD, though.
Furthermore, I think Guantanamo must be destroyed.

When I drink tea, it's hot, milky and sweet. I could probably get to like black unsweetened tea if I tried, but iced? No. Tea should be hot, and if it isn't you put it in the microwave.
Be not afraid...

London Fogs, Bangalore Fogs, and Chai spice exist. You argument is invalid.

I just realized how possibly-innuendo-y tea drinking can be.

That said...I want to try every single tea that Iroh has drank that I haven't yet before I die...but I don't want to rewatch the entire series...

I'm sure there exists a list of those somewhere. Because fans are weird.
