It’s summer, it’s hot, and if there’s one thing that can cool you down instantly, it’s a tall glass of iced tea. Friday is National Iced Tea Day, giving you a perfect excuse to chill out by finding a porch and a pitcher.
You won’t be alone. People love the beverage, even in the U.S.: Americans drank more than 3.6 billion gallons of tea in 2015, mostly of the black and green variety. And about 85 percent of all that tea gulped down was iced, according to the Tea Association of the USA.
Celebrating National Iced Tea Day doesn’t have to break the bank. A number of businesses have special deals, running either Friday or all season long, to help you get your hands on the delicious beverage. Here are a few of our favorites:
