I'll take you a picture the next time I'm in a convenience store ; )

It'll be payback for every time I had to watch a brit stir up a mug of instant coffee on screen.

You're really dealing with a whole different beast as soon as you make it cold, though. You have to brew it super strong because it's going to be watered down by ice and becuase cold numbs taste (same principle applies to iced coffee). So it's not like your breaking our your premium looseleaf stuff to make it.

Well, if you're making it yourself, you just use cheap supermarket tea bags--the really basic stuff. Same goes if you're making it with green tea. And then if you want other flavors you add extra things to it, like mint or lemon or fruit.

I don't know how people who make gallon tea do it, but I'd imagine they use about the equivalent, just not in individual bag form. Though their flavors are no doubt flavor syrups.

Iced tea runs a gamut? I mean, there's lovely, artisinally brewed stuff, and there's stuff that's basically soda without the fizz. Guess which kind McDonald's sells.

imagine that you could get gallons of already-made instant coffee.
Well, I've never seen it in gallons, but there's plenty of bottled iced coffee around. I'd imagine it's basically the quality equivalent, but again: you can't really tell when it's cold, so there's no point wasting the good stuff.

Course the most important context for this debate is that y'all do not have proper summers. Make no assumptions about what you would and wouldn't find acceptable in 98 degree heat with humidity nudging 100% (google tells me . . . 37 celsius).

I feel the answers are rigged.
Which brings me back to my original point: it's McDonald's, of course it's awful.

So you don't think us total heathens, I'll bring up the charming ritual of sun tea, in which you put a bunch of tea bags and water in a great big jar and set it out on the stoop all day to brew in the sun.

That's just inhumane.
Indeed it is. But boy is ice tea fantastic in those conditions.
