National Iced Tea Day Iced Tea Day

Tuesday, June 10th is National Iced Tea Day

Why not celebrate this national beverage holiday by making a refreshing glass of iced tea while relaxing outside. The weather is heating up this time of year and the summer holidays are nearly upon us. When was the last time you made sun tea? With a glass jar, some packets of tea, and 3-5 hours of sunlight you can create your own batch of sun tea. Add a little lemon or dried fruit to spice up the recipe. If you make sun tea be sure to clean the jar very well before brewing the tea and make sure not to leave it in the sun for too long. This can cause the tea to become bitter. Herbal Tea on the other hand often can be steeped for a longer duration often because it does not contain tea leaves.
