According to our Food Celebration Calendars, it's June, aka National Iced Tea Month! While we sometimes wilt under extreme heat & humidity, a tall frosty glass of Iced Tea always refreshes and revitalizes us.
Back in the day, we only knew about the classic iced tea- chilled and sweetened Black Tea like Lipton's. Today we reach for any number of iced tea concoctions including ones with teas ranging from Green to Hibiscus. We've also seen some inventive tea cocktails like a Green Tea Margarita and a Cucumber & Green Tea Martini.
To help you find the most refreshing Iced Tea drinks, we fired up the FoodPair search engine and found a handful of great recipes from across the Web.
