Celebrate Memorial Day with Tea

Memorial Day is a day to remember all those who have sacrificed their lives to serve our country. It is also a day to spend with family and friends in the anticipation of summer. Memorial Day is usually filled with cold drinks, burgers on the grill, and outdoor activities, all things that are making us excited for the upcoming holiday!

Add Iced Tea to Your Day

Nothing sounds more relaxing and refreshing then an iced tea on a warm summer day. Iced tea is not only delicious but has a long list of health benefits along with it. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that keep a check on calories consumed during the day but also is overall a great way to boost your energy and nourish your body. Even kids enjoy the sweet flavors and refreshment of iced tea with the extra bonus of low sugar. Hot or cold, tea is a great option for any time of day to enjoy, even in your food! We want you to focus on your time spent with family and friends and leave your menu planning to us!
