The earliest evidence of lemons being used for their health benefits dates back to 200 BC, when the Greek physician Galen wrote about their benefits for curing various ailments. Lemons were also used in traditional Chinese medicine, which was thought to have a cooling effect. The Romans utilized lemons as cleaning products and were often used as insect repellents. During the Middle Ages, lemons were used as a cleaning product, especially for removing stains.

The earliest written record of lemonade dates back to the 10th century, when it was noted in Persian literature. By the 17th and 18th centuries, lemonade was widely consumed in Britain as a remedy for colds and fevers. It wasn’t until the 19th century that American pharmacists started sweetening the mix with sugar and selling it as a refreshing beverage.

How To Make Lemonade

Ice Tea Recipe

Ice Tea Recipe

Ice tea is a refreshing drink enjoyed worldwide and trendy in the summer. The history of iced tea dates back to the 17th century. At the time, tea was expensive, and only the wealthy could afford it. Most of the population drank black tea, which was widely available and much cheaper than green tea. In the summer, black tea would often become overly strong and bitter, causing many people to avoid drinking it. In the 17th century, a new way of drinking tea was introduced: pouring hot tea over a block of sugar. The first "tea bag" was introduced by Thomas Sullivan in the U.S. in 1901. In the same year, the first iced tea was served at the Pan-American Exposition in 1901 in Buffalo, New York.

At first, this tea was made by pouring boiling water over tea leaves. The tea was then left to steep for several hours. The tea was poured over ice when the desired strength had been reached. This led to the development of a quick ice tea recipe. The popularity of this tea grew, and it gradually spread to other countries. Over time, this tea has been given many different names in various countries. It is known as chai tea in Thailand, arrack in India, mate in Argentina, and many other names.

How To Make Ice Tea

To make iced tea, simply pour hot tea over ice. The longer the tea steeps, the stronger the flavor. For a more intense flavor, brew a pot of tea and pour it over a few ice cubes. You may also add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to your iced tea for a slightly tart edge.

Sweet Tea Recipe

Sweet tea is a traditional Southern beverage that has been enjoyed in the U.S. since the colonial era. The first printed reference to sweet tea was in the 17th century. At that time, "tea" was used to describe any hot beverage, so it is unclear whether the first sweet tea was black tea or another variety.

The first few known recipes for sweet tea came from the American South in the early 19th century. Legend has it that a vendor at the Atlanta Exhibition in 1871 offered a new twist on traditional tea by brewing it with sugar instead of the more familiar Indian sugar. The rest, as they say, is history.
