(WSLS 10) – Today (June 10) marks National Iced Tea Day – a day set aside to celebrate one of summer’s favorite cold drinks. Whether it’s sweetened or unsweetened, iced tea has become an iconic hot-weather drink enjoyed by Americans all summer long and by southerners all year long.
The Tea Association of the USA says tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water. The organization says four in five consumers drink tea.
