Fun Observances

Iced Tea Day

June 10 is Iced Tea Day. Say hello to the summer and celebrate this delicious and refreshing holiday by treating yourself to a big glass of iced tea.

Iced tea in a summer garden.

Iced tea is a beverage made by cooling or chilling brewed tea. Generally served with ice, iced tea is a popular beverage around the world and is usually made from green or black tea.

Iced tea can be served sweetened or unsweetened, plain or with added flavors - usually lemon or peach. Some countries, however, have their special version of this drink. In Brazil, it is made from Yerba Mate, while in Taiwan it is usually served with milk or condensed milk and tapioca pearls.

Sun Tea

In some parts of the world, iced tea is made by steeping the tea in water for a longer time at a lower temperature instead of boiling the tea with water. Usually, this is done by leaving the tea in the Sun to steep. This is known as sun tea.

How to Celebrate?

  • Mix up a fresh batch of ice tea and have your friends and family over to enjoy the day outdoors with some ice tea.
  • Experiment with different flavors of ice teas. What about adding some summery fruits or perhaps some alcoholic liquor?
  • In the Southern Hemisphere, and getting ready for the winter? Don't fret. Treat yourself to a tall glass of iced tea and enjoy the last few days of summer!

Did You Know…

…that tea is the second most popularly consumed beverage in the world? The first is water.

I just saw an ad for a position I feel completely qualified for:

"Wanted:

bartenders. No exp. necessary. Must have: legal ID, phone, transportation, and teeth."

A customer walked into our store looking for Christmas lights. I showed her our top brand, but—wanting to make sure each bulb worked—she asked me to take them out of the box and plug them in. I did, and each one lit up.

"Great," she said.

I carefully placed the string of lights back in the box. But as I handed them to her, she looked alarmed.

"I don't want this box," she said abruptly. "It's been opened."

As we were putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, I accidentally dropped one. "No problem," I said, picking it up and dusting it off before placing it back on the plate.

"You can't do that," argued my four-year-old.

"Don't worry. Santa will never know."

He shot me a look. "So he knows if I've been bad or good, but he doesn't know the cookie fell on the floor?"

My mother cast one of her students as the innkeeper for the Christmas pageant. All the third grader had to do was tell Joseph, "There is no room at the inn." But during the performance—after Joseph begged for a room for his pregnant wife—the boy didn't have the heart to turn him down. "Well," he said, "if it's so urgent, come on in."
