"half and half" tea - Bmore

Can someone point me to a specific restaurant for something called "half and half" tea that's apparently served in storefront Chinese joints on the east side of Baltimore?

I was just reading Laura Lippman's new mystery and one of the characters makes note of this concoction which sounds intriguing to me.

    Are you talking about half lemonade-half iced tea (aka an Arnold Palmer)? Those are widely available. But if you're talking about something else, maybe you can give use more details as to what it is!!!

      Gosh, I'm not sure, but that might be right. I just heard that term and didn't know what it was - thanks.

        I did a quick web search, and all references I found indicate you're right about Palmer and the half lemonade, half iced tea concoction, but I'm really puzzled because I recall reading of his preference actually being half lemonade and half Coke. Maybe my memory's going!

        Is this maybe a half coffee/half tea bubble drink?

          It's half iced tea, half lemonade- you can even get it at starbucks now.

            When I lived in Central Virginia and Tennessee, we called iced tea that was a mix of half sweet tea and half unsweetened tea, "half 'n half tea".
