The revelation comes courtesy of Stephen Patula, the McDonald’s employee behind the popular TikTok page @patulafamilymcdonalds. In this new video, which has already drawn almost 5 million views, Patula explained why hot tea is his location’s least-sold item. “We bought these stores back in July, and I have yet to serve one hot tea,” Patula said in the clip. “I actually didn’t even know that we sold hot tea until about a month ago”.
