Happy national iced tea day! Yes, friends, another silly holiday -- with a great perk attached to it.
According to the Tea Association of the USA , Americans drank over 79 billion servings of tea (that comes out to about 3.6 billion gallons of the golden liquid). And how do we like our tea? Iced, of course. Approximately 85% of tea consumed in America is iced.
That's no surprise to us here in South Florida. We know that when the weather is a balmy 90 degrees, a tall glass of iced tea is one of the most refreshing treats around.
You know what's better than iced tea? Free iced tea.
In honor of national iced tea day, 7-Eleven is offering guests free iced tea. And it's not a little baby serving, either. It's a giant, 32-ounce Big Gulp of their new freshly brewed iced tea.
All you have to do is download the free 7-Eleven smartphone app, available via Google Play or the Apple App Store. You could also get the app by texting "APP" to 711711. A coupon for your free iced tea Big Gulp will be uploaded automatically, which can be redeemed at your local 7-Eleven store. The offer is good all day, today, June 10.
With the temperature reaching 86 degrees today, a free iced tea Big Gulp sounds like the perfect way to take a break this afternoon.
