Celebrating Iced Tea Month: The History of a Drink We Have Grown To Love

In celebration of Iced Tea Month, we trace the glorious history of our beloved drink.  Iced tea, despite the folklore, was not discovered by accident.  It can be dated back to the 18th century in South Carolina, the only place in the United States at that time to produce tea plants.  The first iced tea ever made was called Ice Tea Punches because they were heavily spiked with alcohol and were made with green tea leaves, not black.

The first traditional iced tea was introduced in 1879 in Old Virginia, with a recipe by Marion Cabell Tyree.  She was the first to include lemon in iced tea.  Soon after, it became popular and everyone followed suit.  Thus, the traditional iced tea was born, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Nowadays, anyone can enjoy the refreshing benefits of iced tea anytime, anywhere.  There are a lot of brands that offer various flavors, but only one brand has become synonymous to iced tea–Nestea.  Nestea has been serving iced tea enthusiasts worldwide since 1948.  It provides various countries with different variants and flavors.

In the Philippines, where iced tea is best served sweet, tea lovers can easily bring along and enjoy their favorite refreshment wherever they go with Nestea in a Bottle.  Available in three exciting flavors, Lemon, Lemon Ice, and Apple, everyone gets to enjoy iced tea wherever they go.

Surely, with Nestea in a bottle, everyday is a celebration.

Apple Chronicles: Hello Again, San Francisco!

As I only have one free day in California, I decided to spend it in one of my favorite cities in the world: San Francisco.  It’s been more than three and a half years since I’ve last been here and I still have some unfinished business to settle.

Apple Chronicles: California-Bound

After spending the week, it’s time to move onto my next business destination, California.  This would be my first domestic flight in a foreign country in over eight years!  It’s a lot less glamorous though than my earlier flights as I went on economy class. This is part of a series ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ […]

It’s the third day of the year.  New Year’s two days ago already.  Yet, it’s not too late to start.  And I, am doing just that.

Best Nine of 2017

I can’t believe that we are now on the last few days of 2017!  As much as I’d like to say that this year flew by quickly, I also realized that a lot of things also happened that seemed like so long ago.  And there are nine experiences that made this year very memorable for me.
