June - Iced Tea Month


June is National Iced Tea Month
Legend has it that a tea vendor at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis popularized the drink.
When visitors turned down free hot tea at the sweltering event,
he ran it through iced pipes to chill the brew. 
Word quickly spread about his cold tea.

Iced tea is better known in my part of the country as "ice tea." 
Most folks drink their ice tea with sugar known as "Sweet Tea." 
I drink unsweetened iced tea aka "unsweet ice tea".

No matter what you call it, with the hot temperatures and high humidity, 
Austin and I have been drinking iced tea for 
breakfast, lunch and supper this summer. 
Yes, I said "supper," because that's what our evening meal is known as
here in Appalachia (appa-latch-a).
