Iced Tea season is right around the corner. Here's a quick story of how it came to be in the United States: Most historians mistakenly give credit to Richard Blechynden, India Tea Commissioner and Director of the East Indian Pavilion, as being the creator of ice tea at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. In the East Indian Pavilion at the Fair, Blechynden was offering free hot tea to everyone. Because of the intense heat, it was soon realized that the heat prevented the crowd from drinking his hot tea. Blechynden and his team took the brewed India tea, filled several large bottles, and placed them on stands upside down - thus allowing the tea to flow through iced lead pipes. This free iced tea was very much welcomed by the thirsty fair goers. After the fair, Blechynden took his lead pipe apparatus to New York City, offering free iced tea to shoppers at Bloomingdale Brothers Department Store, demonstrating iced tea is a desirable summertime drink.

Blueberries, Pomegranate, and Goji Berries are all renowned superfruits, making Überberry a sort of Justice League of wellness. The antioxidants contained in each sip help steel your body against free radicals. But before any ‘powers combine’ it all begins with Sencha leaves, a Japanese classic.

Steepology 101:
Green Tea Harvesting: Big leaf and leaf bud are picked and in Japan the tea is dried and then steamed and develops roasted and malty characteristics.

In China the tea is put in Woks where it becomes fluffy and develops notes of honey and fresh vegetation.

Steepology 101: Did you know that you can steep the same tea multiple times? Many times the tea is still strong and additional infusions have radically different taste characteristics. Many people prefer the second infusion so much more that they discard the first infusion entirely.
