OK, here it is June 25th, so I know I'm a little late getting this info out to you, but June is National Iced Tea Month. My question is: why?
You would think that the powers that be in the iced tea world (or whoever names these holidays) would wait for the much warmer/hotter/more humid months of July or August for this holiday. June is always a strange month (depending on where you live, of course). Some days can be 90, some days can be 60. Some days we can have torrential downpours, some days nothing but blue skies and heat. But even when it's warm and sunny it's never as warm and sunny as July and August.
But that's OK. Iced tea is my summer drink and I don't mind starting out the summer this way. I don't like real iced tea though (it just tastes like, well, cold tea to me). I need lots of sugar and lemon.
