Happy Belated National Iced Tea Day!
Did you celebrate on June 10th? In honor of this national day, I would like to share a white tea I discovered two years ago that makes a really nice iced tea.
Typically I like my iced tea strong and straight. I usually use Irish or English Breakfast teas. Recently I've been inspired by two issues of Tea Time magazine that featured a wide variety of iced teas. I want to branch out this summer and order some of these teas.
Come join me for a refreshing glass of organic Ginger Pear Iced White Tea.
This tea comes from Trader Joe's. I prefer it iced. It's a great thirst quencher for hot days. The ginger flavoring is very subtle not spicy and the pear flavoring adds a small amount of natural sweetness.
The tea comes in individual bags which makes it easy to make iced tea. (Excuse the shadows.)
"American-style iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot, sunny day. It never really caught on in the UK, probably because the last time we had a sunny day was in 1957."
All kidding aside, my family in Ireland thinks the whole idea of iced tea is bizarre.
I admit I'm really picky when I go to restaurants and order iced tea. I always ask if the tea is freshly brewed. I'm not a fan of the sweetened powdered "fast food" type of iced tea. Also, I've never had southern sweet tea. I'm looking forward to trying that one day.
*Do you have a go to iced tea? Please share your favorite iced teas that you recommend for this summer.*
Thank you in advance! I appreciate your visits.
Best wishes for a wonderful week filled with conversation, tea and sunny skies.
