Burger King Informative - BK brewed sweet tea
Ok, so the kid wanted to go to BK today for lunch so I agreed. As I pulled into the parking lot I notice a big sign on the window that says "$1 Iced Tea fresh brewed". Now I love McDonalds Sweet Tea, so I'm thinking "Great now I'll have another choice of FF places since BK now has (what I call) Sweet Tea".
We go in and order and get our cups. I put ice in the cup and starting dispensing the brewed sweet tea and notice that the color is kinda dark. Ok, maybe they made it strong. I've had strong tea before. I take a sip and instantly knew that there is no way this can even come close to tasting as good as McDonalds. I wouldn't classify this as "unsweet tea" but for me it might as well have been. Now if some of you think McDonalds makes their tea too sweet, then maybe you'll like this one. I also think it might be whatever brand they use that tastes different.
I stopped and asked the manager if it was something that was prepacked or is made by each location thinking maybe another location would have better tea. She told me that all they do is put some kind of package in a machine and it does the rest. The only part that they add is the sugar. So unless somewhere, someone gets carried away with the sugar, I don't see myself ordering this again. She also mentioned that they have only had this for about a week. Maybe I'll be brave after some time and see if they improved their recipe.
I don't classify this as a complaint since it just wasn't to my liking. Someone else may love this stuff as much as I love McDonalds sweet tea.
