National Iced Tea Month by Laura Childs

Monday, June 9th 2014 @ 12:29 PM

June is National Iced Tea Month, which I think is pretty perfect.  There’s really nothing like a frosty iced tea on a warm summer day.  It’s amazing to think about how iced tea even came about. 

Legend has it that iced tea was invented at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis (yes, that fair.  The Meet Me in St. Louis fair.)  Due to the sweltering weather, a hot tea vendor was having great difficulty enticing his customers to purchase his equally hot drink.  So the quick-thinking entrepreneur dropped in a few ice cubes and – voila! – iced tea was not only invented, it became the hit of the fair!

The terrific thing about iced tea is that just about any tea works fairly well.  In fact, a winter spice tea that tastes so warm and welcoming in cold weather, suddenly tastes spicy and fruity when made into iced tea.  And then there is sun tea, that good old-fashioned brewing method of tossing tea leaves (or tea bags) into a big glass jug of water and letting it steep in the sun for a few hours.  Is this giving you an idea or two?  Good.  Grab a bag of tea and enjoy!
