I think this line's mostly filler.

If you order (hot) tea in an American restaurant, you typically get a cup of warm water, and, some time later, a selection of tea bags.

If you don't specify hot tea, you're likely to get iced tea.

And if you are in the south, it's going to be sweet enough to hurt your teeth

Both my grandmother's made a big thing about tea with me when I was a child. They're the ones who encouraged putting milk in my tea, and now I can't enjoy it any other way. Makes it hard for me to like herbal teas....putting milk in them seems weird somehow.

My grandmother drank tea continuously and drank it tar black. No one else in the family could drink it that way. But then, she was different in other ways too like she got a pilot's license before her driver's license.
