10 June – Iced Tea Day
Today is Iced Tea Day! Iced tea is an iconic summer beverage and one of the most refreshing elixirs known to man. There is something magical about the combination of brewed tea, mint leaves, and fresh lemon slices served over ice. Historians believe that people began serving cold tea sometime during the 19th century. The drink became popular when vendors started selling it at public events and the World’s Fair.
Today, people make iced tea using a variety of different flavours. You can also mix iced tea with other beverages. One of the most popular iced tea beverages is an “Arnold Palmer”, which consists of half iced tea and half lemonade.
Sweetened or unsweetened, flavoured or unflavoured, celebrate Iced Tea Day with a nice, tall glass of your favourite iced tea!
