Georgia State Representative John Noel introduced a House Bill in 2003 proposing that all Georgia restaurants that serve tea should be required to serve sweet tea too. It was a joke he played on Legislature, but yet he wanted it become a law.

Organic Hibiscus tea. The Tea Time Shop.June 10th is National Iced Tea Day and Americans will celebrate with their favorite iced tea. Not just black, green or herbal flavors either. There are so many more varieties now available. Tisane's are among these because they are fruity, naturally sweet, and non-caffeinated. One of the key ingredients in most Tisane's is Hibiscus, the ingredient that gives tisane's its wonderful color and tart flavor. On a hot summer day there is nothing more refreshing than an iced tea. That's why June was chosen as the official month to celebrate Iced Tea. It's a refreshing beverage that contains no sodium or sugar. It helps to keep you hydrated and promotes good health.
