June is National Iced Tea Month! If you have a favorite iced tea, please leave a post and let us know what it is.
About 80 percent of the tea served in the US today is iced tea.
Here are a few iced tea facts:
Iced tea's popularity led to the introduction of the iced tea spoon. Its long handle allowed sugar to be added to a fashionably tall glass filled with iced tea.
Early on, American housewives brewed and mixed tea with various fruits, juices and syrups for a Tea Punch.
To celebrate National Iced Tea Month, freeze little slices of lemon in ice cubes or make limeade ice cubes for a refreshing touch in iced tea. Also, seltzer water added to iced tea creates a refreshing, flavored spritzer, or if you are ready to "kick it up a notch", add a splash of citrus vodka to iced tea.
