Ice Ice Baby

We've done our fair share of coverage about iced tea, but it's been a while now. So here we go again.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel declares that "the days of settling for generic, watered-down iced tea are over" and discusses a variety of options from (the locally based) Rishi Tea, Teavana, Numi and others.

Farther south, in New Orleans, the Times-Picayune does a substantial piece on the iced tea at Jazzfest, also known as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Also included, a few iced tea recipes.

Martha Stewart's syndicated Ask Martha feature turns up in a variety of papers, and recently gave the lowdown on the "sweet tea" favored in the South. Here's the column as it appeared in the Indianapolis Star.

The particular Teavana in Charleston, SC is unique for having the option of iced tea where the ice is infused with honey (or sugar), and comes from a machine similar to a slushee machine. It's a really interesting alternative, which I really like.
