As I remember, my habit of using sugar in my iced tea was a brief departure from good taste, perhaps a year or less when I was a child. Today, just the idea of putting sugar—or any sweetener—in tea causes an unpleasant physical reflex. I say I don’t like sweet foods much, yet I will happily consume cookies or cakes or an occasional piece of candy. Perhaps it’s intense sweetness I find unappealing. Why this is relevant to me as I drink a cup of coffee (black and unsweetened, of course) at 4:30 in the morning eludes me.  But there you go.
