June is National Iced Tea month. I am honoring iced tea with this refreshing treasury of amber colors of tea and citrus yellow of a slice of tart lemon that compliments the tea so well. According to Tea Time Magazine, in 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair a man named Richard Blechynden was trying to hand out samples of hot tea in the sweltering Missouri summer. He chilled the tea in ice and was able to offer the fair-goers a cool, refreshing beverage and from that point, iced tea became a popular drink in the US.
