I should mention that spiced chai is still the trendy thing to drink in those areas which don't have pearl tea (or much of an Asian community).

That said, no tea is particularly trendy outside the suburbs, in the great, vast heartland of America.

In the South, however, tea is institutionalized, and generally served cold. It is the standard beverage of choice, considered more normal than water. You don't get offered tea in restaurants, you get offered "sweet tea". Attempts to order unsweetened tea or, infact, just a plain, normal cup of tea, will be greeted with odd stares and denials.

Everywhere else, however, you will have to order iced tea, which you can then sweeten yourself.
