Checking your calendar will uncover many obscure holidays and National Iced Tea Day, June 10th, is one of the many! There’s no real origin for the day. Iced tea was invented in 1904 when “English tea plantation owner Richard Blechynden set up a booth at St. Louis World fair. Many people used napkins to wipe their wet brows. Personalized Napkins always give you a firmer grip on wet glasses. You can rest glasses on our Monogram Napkins and cookies, bagels, fruit and even raw vegetables. Unfortunately they had nine of their accompaniments that day at the St Louis Fair. It was a hot day, too hot for regular tea but fair goers needed something to quench their thirst. Blenched dumped some of his tea in ice and served it cold. “It was an immediate hit.” Something like our Color Mist Personalized Napkins and Guest Towels, have you tried them yet?
Advertisers can take a lot of the responsibility for what is now National Iced Tea Day. It’s not associated with a brand like Lipton or Tetley but it was clearly invented to get people thinking and drinking iced tea before the official start of summer. The perfect way to celebrate it would be to take your glass of iced tea out with you to your favorite lawn chair or underneath a tree and enjoy the experience, holding your glass wrapped with your custom napkin or guest towels. Enjoying it with friends of course means you’ll lounge around and enjoy the moment, wherever it’s most convenient: buffet, set of tumblers in cans? Iced tea is great served with just about everything. Serve it with lemon, apple, raspberry, cherry, or blueberry flavoring. Fruit juices like pineapple, mango, kiwi juices or ginger make truly unique accompaniments. Try it with your favorite Giftsin24 Napkins, in your hotel, restaurant, or lounge. Have plenty of Embossed Napkins, Foil Striped, Forever Foil Stamped or Paris Foil Stamped Napkins to accent your accompaniments, even fruit. Tea is believed to have a wide range of medicinal purposes too. Write them down on your Personalized Notepads: helping to avoid heart disease, cancer tumors, stomach ailments and sore throats.
