If you order tea to drink in your area, is it hot or cold?

I live in NJ and if I ever order tea somewhere, it's hot. When I was in Texas awhile back, I ordered tea and the waitress automatically brought me iced tea. I was wondering what people would assume in your area if you asked for tea.

hm, in my area it is always specified "hot tea" or "iced tea". I don't think a waitress would ever just assume one way or the other!

I never considered just saying "tea". I always say "unsweetened iced tea, no lemon". (Yes, I'm a damned Yankee living in the South.)

Ordering hot tea is "pot of tea".

Depends on the weather. In this temperature, I'll order hot tea; and I'll order a nice lemon iced tea when it gets warm.

In my area, I've always been asked - though most will order a "cup" of hot tea and a "glass" of iced tea.

Usually it's iced, but it's all about where I'm getting it and sometimes the season, if I just say tea or a cup of tea

I only ever order it in Chinese restaurants and it's always hot.

"Tea" here usually means hot tea and you have to specify iced tea if that's what you want.

I posted other, because technically "my area" meaning "my home" would bring you hot tea without question. Where I am now, however, I would definitely wind up with sweet iced tea.

It really depends. When I go to a Chinese restaurant I like it iced, at a donut or similar shop I like it hot.

I say cup of tea, which usually means hot tea. I would specify iced tea if I wanted it cold.

Oops I voted for hot. I meant cold. I think in my area it would be cold.

If I order tea at a restaurant it's cold. Hot tea is typically only used during the winter to help fight off a sore throat.

In Indiana its mainly Iced Tea unless you order hot tea and then you will probably get some strange looks lol

In FL, everywhere I go, it's usually cold tea. I kind of prefer it that way, though.

Tea is usually hot when I order it, but I'm not really from a warm area.

If you order tea most of the waitresses will ask Hot or cold. Most often though we order it is a cup of hot tea or a glass of iced tea.

I don't really do hot tea. I always occupy that space with coffee. I love a good iced tea though!
