9 Ways to Celebrate National Iced Tea Day on June 10

Mark the start of summer with the annual National Iced Tea Day on June 10. Here are some ideas to get you started.

  1. Brands and retailers can offer a coupon for a free tea on Iced Tea Day.
  2. Incorporate your teas into a delectable iced tea recipe. Share the recipe and promote the blend with your customers and friends on social media.
  3. Share the love for the recent Global Tea Championship Iced Tea Winners. Find them here. Tout them in your store or via social media.
  4. Teavana is kicking off summer “Fri-YAYs” every Friday, starting June 2 through Aug. 11. Customers can choose from three iced tea flavors, including Beach Bellini™, Strawberry Daquiri and Pina Colada. You can find all of the details here. (Perhaps retailers can join in on the Happ-tea Hour trend.)
  5. Make iced tea popsicles as a special way to celebrate the day with your customers and to enjoy with the warmer weather.
  6. Host an iced tea party. Use iced tea as a way to bring customers together and have a patio party with a punchbowl full of Southern sweet tea.
  7. Have a tasting test between cold brew iced tea and hot brewed iced tea and see if customers can tell the difference.
  8. Add an international flair to the day by sharing a Thai iced tea.
  9. Tap the adult slushy trend and promote a sweet tea slush. (Don’t have the equipment handy? Check your local party rental store.)
