At least it's democratically correct in the "iced tea" case. Sine June 10 is the National Iced Tea Day and the entire month of June is National Iced Tea Month, there’s no time like the present to write and drink more about iced tea!! Icy Hotie, Hotie, Hotie!!

In the U.S. and England, intentionally cold teas date back at least to the early 1800s in the form of punches made from green tea and alcohol. As ice became less expensive and refrigeration was introduced into homes, iced tea became an increasingly popular beverage choice. Its heavily-sugared cousin, sweet tea, has been a Southern staple since at least 1879, when the first known recipe for sweet tea was published in a community cookbook in Virginia.
Iced tea was even sold at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, where iced tea and lemonade sales earned one enterprising vendor more than $2,000.
While Blechynden obviously cannot be credited with the invention of iced tea, he and his fellow tea sellers at the 1904 World’s Fair deserve kudos for bringing iced tea out of the kitchen and into the commercial market.source via
