In celebration of National Iced Tea Day today, Gerome has decided to highlight the work, Iced Tea: a Nation-wide Study of American Beverage Habits in the Summertime, from the A.W. Noling Hurty-Peck Collection of Beverage Literature. Produced and distributed by the Tea Bureau in 1948, this report is an analysis of a national survey conducted regarding beverage consumption in the summertime, with a special emphasis on iced tea. The report contains data regarding beverage consumption by geographic area, size of community, age, and economic level. Also included are two sections titled: “The Housewife’s Habits” and “The Restaurant Picture.”
Gerome hopes you enjoy a glass of iced tea today!
