It was at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Texas, during an hot summer, that iced tea, prepared by pouring the hot drink on ice cubes, was popularized and commercialized. The preparation is simple, just steep 1 Iced Tea bag for the ideal brew time in ½ litre of simmering water. Pour into glasses or a jug 2/3 filled with ice cubes. Stir well and enjoy your quick-prep iced tea. For a sweeter taste, add sugar or honey to the hot tea before pouring it on ice cubes.
