This Woman's Tea Recipe Has The Whole Internet Slightly Enraged

I mean...can we even call this tea?

We can all agree that the beverages pictured below are tea, correct?

Well, the internet is up in arms over the way this woman on TikTok makes her tea. To be fair, being from Texas, I grew up with instant iced tea mix. But the longer I watched this TikTok, the more...uh...confused I became:

Let me break this down for you. She not only uses Tang in her tea recipe, but an extra TWO CUPS of sugar. Because....there's not enough sugar already in the iced tea mix and the Tang?????

My teeth are aching just thinking of this. Also, @jchelle36 has not, as of yet, responded to the...curiosity about her tea recipe.

To finish it off, she microwaves a mug of water and drinks this beverage hot. Naturally, people had QUITE A FEW opinions about this:

@onmy9thlife Sugar, sugar, more sugar, flavored sugar, differently flavored Sugar, a waste of cinnamon, a waste of cloves

@onmy9thlife That’s not tea in any sense. It’s some kind of flavoured sugar solution.

@onmy9thlife How very dare she call that chemical sludge “tea”?
