Summatime Summatime Sum Sum Summatime for Milo’s tea!

It’s mid June and even in the Northwest the forecast is for warm days and nights. It’s iced tea time! (Yes, I know that iced tea is a good, year ’round beverage, but it’s just so much better on a warm day with a slice of lemon, ice clinking, and beads of condensation gathering on the glass.)

Let me introduce you to  Milo’s Famous Tea; a fantastic prepared iced tea. It hails from Alabama, where iced tea is in fact a year ’round beverage, and they are pretty particular about their food and drink. I was lucky enough to live in Alabama, and Southerners are true food experts. Their restaurants boast the most regionally diverse fare anywhere in the country. Even simple potlucks rivals most good dinner parties anywhere else.

So imagine my delight when I spotted Milo’s in Idaho!

Milo’s is sold in gallon jugs in the refrigerated case. It is made fresh and has an expiration date within the next 30 days, so you know there aren’t any preservatives. In fact, all their tea is made from tea leaves, not powdered tea. The mere fact that it doesn’t live on the shelf tells you it’s fresh.

There is sweet tea, unsweet, and no-calorie sweet tea. My favorite is the unsweet, but every so often a good glass of sweet tea is just the ticket.

This tea is flavorful, and strong enough to handle ice-melt. I could drink it all day, and when I get home from work I pour a tall, refreshing glass with just a splash of organic lemonade.

Check out the Milo’s web site and see where you can buy a few gallons. It will be your favorite iced tea by the time you finish your first glass.

  1. The Western United States is finally getting around to discovering the wonderful world of sweet tea that those from the South have known about for years. But while the transition takes place from non-sweet tea drinking regions into sweet tea drinking regions (a transition that has been a long process) we still have to remind the uninitiated what NOT to say to sweet tea drinkers: http://pattisonblog.com/2015/05/31/what-you-should-never-say-to-a-sweet-tea-drinker/
