Middletown's Kyle Barrett, a Commander in the U.S. Navy and professor of strategy at the Naval War College in Newport, knew his Huckleberry Finn tales, wisely sidestepped a "Slumdog Millionaire" question for which he was not as well versed, and rolled the dice with a correct craps answer as he maneuvered through the first round of 10 questions on Wednesday's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?"

<snip>
Question #3: According to the Tea Association of the United States of America, over 80% of tea consumed in the U.S. is what type of tea?

A: White tea? B: Oolong tea? C: Black tea? D: Green tea?


The answer is in the link above...but before clicking Post your answer first and don't reveal the real answer :)

Black, I don't know many who don't drink it. Also, as Ambrose said, iced(and sweet) tea.
