I grew up on Lake Huron, and from a young age was drawn to the water. Not only did it inspire the career path I'm on, but my time at the lake has also created many memories - from countless hours spent laying in the sand laughing with girlfriends, to donning scuba gear and dipping below the surface to explore, and even the celebration of my husband and I saying 'I do'. The lake is my favourite place to be in the summer, and the perfect place to unwind and celebrate the end of a long week at work.
There's a few things that I've learned are key to any successful day at the lake: a) bring a good book, or even better, someone to create the memories with, b) liberally apply sunscreen before and after going in the water and c) hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Thanks to iced tea, the latter has never been an issue. Despite living in the "north", there was no shortage of iced tea consumed in my household. It is a perfect beverage to serve during the hot summer months - cooling, refreshing and loved by all.
Bigelow iced tea is the 'real deal', none of that powdered or canned from concentrate stuff. This comes straight from the bag, steeped to perfection. My favourite is Bigelow's iced tea and lemonade, which comes in two flavours - original and pomegranate. I also like to add fruit, such as a slice of lemon and a few raspberries. The fruit adds an extra punch to the already delicious flavour, and if frozen, keeps your tea colder, and you hydrated for longer.
The entire range of Bigelow Tea, including the varieties of iced tea & lemonade, can be found at your local Walmart (US only) in the tea aisle.
Have you tried Bigelow Tea? Not only does the tea taste fantastic, but the company behind it is pretty fantastic too. Bigelow Tea is America's largest family-owned tea company and is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year! What started in a small NYC townhouse has expanded to a worldwide market offering more than 130 varieties of flavored, green, organic, herbal, decaffeinated and iced teas. They strongly believe in healthy ingredients and freshness, never compromising on quality or taste. And for my favourite iced tea & lemonade, that means gluten-free, kosher and GMO-free. Just another reason to love them.
