Can you get iced tea in Paris?

Jump to last reply

I am a fifty year-old, para-menopausal iced tea drinker from way back, and I mean waaaaay back. I'll be in Paris for several weeks during the summer. I don't drink liquor. Will I be able to ask for and get iced tea there? If not;

1) Is there a way to say "Snapple" in French and get a positive reply?

2) If all else fails, is there a way to ask for plain hot tea and a big glass of ice?

3) Am I imposing my American culture too much and need to get over it? If so, is there a way to at least get a big glass of iced water without carbonation?!

4) What can I expect as a serving size? You know, I'm used to getting the huge glasses like you get in American restaurants and fast food joints. And I'm going to want a LOT of hydration during the summer in Paris.

Thoughts and suggestions?
