How to Brew Iced Tea at Home
When an American inadvertently popularized iced tea at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, he had no idea it would leave a national legacy in its wake. The story is that the creator planned to give samples of his hot tea away to fair visitors, but it was so hot in St. Louis that summer that fair visitors seemed uninterested. To make the drink appeal to the fairgoers, he dumped ice into his hot tea and the rest is history. Today, we’ve elevated the fresh-brewed iced tea experience with our Iced Tea Pouches! Each pouch brews a half-gallon of epic iced tea — easy peasy lemon squeezy!
