June is National Iced Tea Month!!
In 1904, a tea vendor by the name of Richard Blechynden was trying to sell his hot tea at the World's Fair in St. Louis. At the time, there was a sweltering heat wave, and sales were bleak. Since no one was buying any, and figuring he had nothing to lose, he added some ice and iced tea instantly became an classic summer beverage! And so ...
On this sweltering day, when sales were bleak at the tea shop, I decided I will provide a daily iced tea recipe through the blog to try and give you as many options as possible for not only staying cool yourself, but for dazzling your weekend barbecue guests as well.
So get ready ... tea, water, ice ... refreshment! It only takes 3-4 minutes!
