Refreshing Ideas From Bigelow Tea To Kick Off Iced Tea Month!
Friday, 7 June 2013
Bigelow Tea over ice, how nice! We absolutely adore fresh-brewed iced tea and know many of you do, too, especially during the summertime. That’s why, come June, it is always exciting to welcome National Iced Tea Month—that’s right, a whole month dedicated to celebrating everything iced tea!
There are so many things to love about homemade iced tea, in addition to the delicious refreshment it delivers. Did you know, for instance, that it is simple and economical to make your own iced tea? It’s true! Any Bigelow Tea variety can be enjoyed over ice. And since you brew it yourself, you control how much sweetener goes into the glass or pitcher, making fresh-brewed iced tea a healthier choice than prepared mixes that come with extra sugar and preservatives. Join Cindi Bigelow in her kitchen (in this video), where she demonstrates just how easy and fun it is to make your own iced tea (plus, take a peek inside her cool “tea drawer”):
As Cindi points out, another way to enjoy iced tea is to experiment with different flavor combinations. We polled consumers to find out which combo is the most popular. The winner? I Love Lemon Herb Tea and English Teatime! You might also want to try one of the fantastic Bigelow Tea “winning combination” iced tea recipes created by our own savvy tea tasters. How about Cranberry Hibiscus and Orange & Spice Iced Tea or Green Tea with Mango and Perfect Peach Iced Tea? Delish! For the ultimate in convenience, look no further than our quart-size tea bags in various flavors, as well as our popular Half & Half Iced Tea and Lemonade blends. Each tea bag in these packages makes a pitcher of iced tea. Stash in the fridge for a refreshing start to the summer season!
