1. Sweet tea
It feels like the obvious choice, but I didn’t know what sweet tea was until I moved to Charleston. It blew my freakin’ mind yo. Now, unless I want to spend half a day brewing my own, I have to settle for Arizona Iced Tea’s nasty knockoff version.
You don’t realize how the weather affects your mood until you’ve lived somewhere that’s sunny and tepid nine months out of the year. I go into a deep depression when it’s cloudy and gray.
