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.

Hotel Review: City Center Hotel (Baguio, 2017)

We stayed at City Center Hotel for the latter half of our impromptu Baguio trip.  This isn’t my first time to stay here so it’s a good chance to see what’s changed since then.

Hotel Review: Casa Vallejo

One of the hotels we stayed in during our impromptu Baguio trip is Casa Vallejo.  This property dates back to 1909 so it has that “old world” charm that drew us to it.  Here’s my review of the oldest hotel in Baguio City.
