June 10 is National Iced Tea Day.
Cool off and honor a Southern staple at the same time because today is National Iced Tea Day. Although it seems like a tall glass of sweet iced tea is as Southern as pecans, hound dogs, pick-up trucks and Mama, it actually got its start in the Midwest. According to agricultural historian, Lydnon N. Irwin, iced tea was born in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair. The owner of a tea plantation wanted to show off his product, but summers in St. Louis are just as hot as they are in Atlanta. None of the fair-goers were interested in his hot tea, so he iced it and the South’s favorite beverage was born. Kendall Harper, owner of TeaFuse Tea House, is something of a tea expert. She offers 70 different kinds of tea at her Vinings store. Harper …
