June has been designated National Iced Tea Month by the Tea Council of the USA.
From their press release:
"June is National Iced Tea Month and what better way to celebrate the warm weather and get into shape than to reward yourself with a refreshing and healthy fresh-brewed glass of iced tea? Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water. In 2011, Americans consumed more than 65 billion servings of tea, or three billion gallons. Of that, approximately 85% was iced. Iced tea is a hydrating alternative to sugary beverages, such as soda, which now account for 20% of total calories in the typical American diet."
While you may enjoy any tea iced, our Iced Tea Sampler Sets are a great place to start!
For a refreshing treat, try our Premium Iced Tea Sampler, containing Rote Grutze, Darjeeling, Extra Bergamot Earl Grey and Traditional Masala Chai, or our Iced Tea Sampler #1, containing our own Darjeeling-Ceylon Iced Tea blend, Peach Tea, Java BOP blend, and Kandy BOP Ceylon.
