National Ice Tea Day And More On June 10!

Iced Tea Day 

As summer approaches, it’s time to dust off the ice cubes and fire up the tea kettle. And what better way to kick off the season than with National Iced Tea Day on June 10th? Believe it or not, iced tea hasn’t always been a staple in American culture. It wasn’t until the scorching hot summer of 1904 that visitors to the St. Louis World’s Fair were introduced to the refreshing drink. Enter Richard Blechynden, a tea plantation owner and merchant who was looking to promote his product. But with temperatures soaring above 100°F, hot tea wasn’t exactly a popular choice among fairgoers. He decided to serve his tea chilled over ice, and it was an instant hit. People loved the cool, sweet taste of iced tea, and the drink quickly became a summertime favourite.

So, on June 10th, grab a tall glass of your favourite iced tea and raise a toast to Richard Blechynden, the man who introduced America to the refreshing drink we all know and love today. Cheers!
