With the very warm summer weather here, the thought of a nice, cool beverage like iced Bigelow Tea is definitely appealing!
While iced tea can be enjoyed all year long, it is especially refreshing during the summer months. What could be better than a tall glass of fresh-brewed iced tea from Bigelow Tea after gardening, mowing the lawn or taking a good, long bike ride? Iced tea is also the perfect beach beverage that the whole family can enjoy.
Though it’s hard to imagine, iced tea is a relatively new “invention.” Its origins can be traced as far back as 1890, but it was widely popularized at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. Now, some 120 years later, summertime and Bigelow iced tea go hand in hand.
All Bigelow Tea varieties are delicious on ice, but some really tickle the summertime palate. Try English Teatime and Lemon Lift as a great combination which is pictured and created by fan Busy At Home, or try Plantation Mint for a crisp, clean beverage, or Wild Blueberry & Açai herbal tea for an invigorating cool drink. Bigelow Tea even makes Iced Tea bags specifically for brewing iced tea! Or, as @needcaffeine tweeted, “8 bags of Bigelow green tea makes a great gallon of iced tea.”
This summer, as the days are long and lingering, take a moment and brew yourself a pitcher of iced tea with Bigelow Tea. Then, sit back, sip, relax and enjoy!
