June 10th is National Iced Tea Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready to cool off
because it's National Iced Tea Day! Good timing, huh? Let's
get right into celebrating National Iced Tea Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Because people love drinking this stuff! Yep, that's it... So
many people enjoy sipping on iced tea that they just have to celebrate
it and they scheduled it on a good day too. It's starting to heat up so
people want a cool drink and they enjoy a nice sweetness to go with
their flavorful drink, so why not tea right? Well, don't mind if I do!
It doesn't matter if you call it iced tea or ice tea, we all call
it yum! And by we I mean the world; this beverage is enjoyed all over
From homemade to manufactured teas, you'll find it in
The Netherlands, Indonesia, Malaysia, Portugal, Taiwan, Turkey,
Austria, Canada, The United States, The United Kingdom and on and on
and on.. yeah, pretty much everywhere! It's sometimes carbonated, it's
sometimes unsweetened but it's always refreshing. And yes, you
can get iced tea in almost any flavor you can think of but there's
another reason to drink iced tea... it's pretty dang healthy! Well,
that is if you skip the carbonation and go easy on the sugar. Maybe opt
for some honey. But iced tea is just tea with ice in it (or it's cooled
down) so it's going to have all the benefits of normal tea too. You're
going to get your antioxidants, boost your metabolism, stay hydrated
and maybe even hold off cancer, heart attacks, strokes and infections.
So don't forget that your iced tea is a bit more than just tasty! Can I
pour you a glass?
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, may I suggest one of
the most relaxing ways? Find a restaurant with a nice, outdoor eating
area and order up a light lunch. When they ask you what you want to
drink, you already know the answer... iced tea, please! Then you can
relax as you sip it down and welcome the thoughts of summer, as it's
just around the corner. And you know once your glass is about half
empty they're going to come back and top you off ;). Now, that's how
you celebrate! But you're always welcome to brew some up yourself
at home. I'm sure a lot of you already have some tea lying around
that's just waiting for you to sip on it. So brew up a big batch, pop
it in the fridge and keep yourself cool all day, from the inside out.
And don't be afraid to mix and match your flavors today; you might find
an amazing blend that makes your taste buds dance with glee! But
if you don't have any tea and you still want to celebrate at home then
head to your local grocery store. Sure, you could pick up some of the
pre-bottled stuff if you like but there's a whole aisle of tea bags
waiting for you! Some companies make giant tea bags just for iced tea,
but that doesn't mean that you can't use other tea too. Let me know the
weirdest tea you saw on your shopping trip and, if you're brave enough,
how it tasted ;). I hope you have a great day and sip slowly!
