Growing up holidays were always spend with family. Either my parents or my uncle were in charge of the picnics or holiday dinners. Everyone would make their signature dish or drink and we would spend the day playing games and just having fun. I remember being a little girl and thinking how I couldn’t wait until I was older and had my own family to throw big celebrations like that. I wanted my kids to have the same fun memories with family like I did. Fast forward to today and holidays are spent just like I hoped, with family enjoying the day together. Since we’re getting ready for our big July 4th picnic this weekend, I wanted to put a delicious and fresh spin on one of my favorite drinks so I made this fresh-brewed Berry Iced Tea.
Growing up, iced tea was our go to drink. My mom made a mean iced tea and it never lasted long at parties at our house. Everyone wanted some of mom’s tea. It was our drink of choice with dinner too. The tradition of drinking tea with dinner has stuck all these years. It’s my drink of choice and I love to relax on the deck with a nice cold glass of fresh-brewed tea from some delicious tea bags.
So it’s no surprise that I’ll be making some delicious iced tea for our picnic this weekend. Only I wanted to put a summer spin on it. The decision was quickly made for me when I stopped by Walmart to pick up some tea. As I walked by the produce section, these delicious blueberries and strawberries were calling my name so I decided on a Berry Iced Tea. It turned out delicious and was the perfect choice.
My local Walmart has the biggest selection of tea around so their my go-to tea stop. For this recipe, I went with Bigelow’s American Breakfast Tea. I’m personally a pretty big fan of Bigelow Tea. I love that they’re an All American company. Their tea is 100% American made by an American family. Their Charleston Tea Plantation is America’s largest working tea garden that even hosts weddings and tours.
Plus, you can’t help but love a company that gives back. Bigelow has a program called Tea for Troops and almost 4 million bags of tea have been sent to troops overseas with this program. You can learn more about it by visiting: https://www.bigelowtea.com/Responsibility/Support-Our-Troops
That’s why I knew this tea was perfect for my July 4th recipe. What better than supporting a company that supports our troops overseas.
