The North Carolina Humanities Council and The Episcopal Church of the Advocate Present: Erin Coyle telling the story of “The Sweet History of Iced Tea”
Thursday, September 1 at 7 PM
Every day, all across North Carolina, people sit down together and share their meals, their stories, their hopes, and their dreams over a frosty glass of good ol’ Southern Iced Tea! Tea, the favorite drink of many cultures and the official drink of the American South, has many a story to tell. But how did the “house wine of the South,” Sweet Iced Tea, come to be? The origins of that tall glass of sweet iced tea served up in all our favorite restaurants has a vast, ancient, and even mystical past. Humans have been drinking the stuff for over 4000 years!
So raise a glass of your sweetest, and sip a millennia of stories.
Invite a friend and come on over.
Tea and cake will be served!
