Did you know today is National Iced Tea Day? Although iced tea and sweet tea are used interchangeably, iced tea is plain tea served over ice. Here in the south, we worship sweet tea, sweetened black tea chilled and served over ice. If you’ve traveled outside the south, you might’ve felt slightly disrespected when sweet tea wasn’t an option when dining out. It’s that serious. With summer approaching, the cooling beverage is the perfect refresher while enjoying a meal at a cookout, having a day at the beach or doing yard work. Grab your favorite brand of tea bags (although let’s be honest. Lipton is best) and brew up a pitcher before checking out what’s going on this weekend in the Triad.
