I’m very happy to introduce you to one of my all time favorite non alcoholic summer drinks – Bigelow Iced Tea Punch, which comes together very quickly and tastes great! Even “non iced tea drinkers” love it, because of the amount of fresh fruit in it.
It is summer and I’m doing my best to stay hydrated. I’ve also been drinking a lot homemade iced tea. Almost every afternoon, I also try to take at least a 30 minute break from work (work from home), sitting in my backyard, reading a book and enjoying my tea #MeAndMyTea! This really helps me stay refreshed and relaxed. I believe in the importance of taking time for yourself and enjoying the small things in life. I know different people have different ways to relax, but this is just one of mine, which requires minimal effort.
As I mentioned, this drink will be great for entertaining. I bet it will be a total winner at your next garden party or gathering.
You can find it in the Tea Section at Walmart.
I’ve been a huge fan of Bigelow Teas for years. I used to always get their Green tea, but this time I decided to try American Breakfast Tea With Lemon. This one turned out to be the perfect choice for my punch, because of its subtle lemon flavor.
Bigelow Tea, America’s largest family-owned tea company, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. Bigelow began in a New York City townhouse, where Ruth Campbell Bigelow developed the iconic “Constant Comment”® tea, and has expanded to a worldwide market offering more than 130 varieties of flavored, green, organic, herbal, decaffeinated and iced teas.
They blend a variety of traditional, surprisingly fun, and healthy ingredients – and they never compromise on quality and taste.
The company believes in freshness, which is why they use a special foil pouch to protect your tea from air, moisture and surrounding aromas. (I love teas wrapped in foil pouches). I hope you also get to enjoy the freshness and aroma of Bigelow teas.
Be sure to check out more Bigelow Tea flavors and brand history at bigelowtea.com. I’ll be happy to hear your favorite flavor or memories with iced tea.
