Sweet Tea, Sun Tea, or Unsweetened?

Posted By Alan Hansen

June is for Tea Lovers!  

As the temperature heats up in June, it’s a perfect time to celebrate National Iced Tea Month!  Whatever your favorite recipe may be, raise a glass this month in honor of this popular refreshing beverage!

Brewing the ideal pitcher of iced tea is a matter of taste. Depending on your taste, you may prefer sun tea, sweet tea or unsweetened tea. Perhaps your palate leans more toward a fruitier tea or a stronger type of tea. As long as it’s iced, June is the month your tea is celebrated.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Iced tea was made as early as the 1870s, but an English merchant by the name of Richard Belchynden brought the beverage to popularity. During the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, temperatures began to soar. Belchynden crossed the Atlantic to sell black tea steeped hot and served to the American public. Under the conditions, fairgoers were interested in cooler beverages. Belchynden needed to switch strategies, or he would have no sales. By brewing a stronger tea and pouring it over ice, the merchant created a new product to sell. The iced tea proved to be a crowd favorite, and its' popularity continues to grow today!
