Nothing quite says summer like a cold glass of iced tea. So, it makes sense that the same month that celebrates the first day of summer also honors summer’s staple drink. This drink has become so popular it can be purchased already bottled or even in a powder form to then be mixed with water. However, some of the best iced tea is almost always homemade. In fact, summer is a great time to brew your tea in the sun and make a summer favorite known as sun tea. If you are drinking iced tea in the south, you are probably drinking sweet tea, which is usually made sugary, sweet with the use of simple syrup. Additionally, iced tea has even advanced to being flavored with fruits such as lemons, peaches and raspberries.
