come for tea

Warming temperatures, blue skies, blooming flowers, and chirping birds beckon us to have our teatimes and tea parties outdoors at this time of year, and I am certainly happy to oblige. This issue is filled with al fresco tea parties in what may be slightly unexpected locales, as well as indoor gatherings with plenty of inspiration from nature. While I enjoy drinking hot tea year-round (yes, even in hot weather), I know that many of you prefer to have yours iced and, perhaps, with a little (or a lot) of sugar. To celebrate your penchant for the cold version of this marvelous beverage and to mark June as National Iced Month, the TeaTime staff is pleased to showcase some of our favorite iced infusions from our recent tasting.

cloudy tea explained

Much of the world continues to be baffl ed by America’s fascination with iced tea. We drink 80 percent of our tea poured over ice and, for over a half-century, we have expected this ubiquitous beverage to be “a crisp, clear tea that’s never cloudy,” as first advertised by Nestea Instant Iced Tea in 1971. While we writers wax eloquently about the legendary tea gardens of China, India, and Sri Lanka, many readers will find it surprising that over 40 percent of the tea imported annually into the United States comes from Argentina. In that South American country, tea bushes, planted in long rows on flat terrain, are skim-cut weekly by tall-wheeled harvesters that vacuum the clippings into hoppers. Truckload after truckload of fresh green leaves are quickly transported to adjoining…
