Recipe News: Beat the heat with these unique recipes
Summer may not officially arrive until next week, but here's another reason to start celebrating the season a little bit early: June is National Iced Tea Month.
There are several reasons why a glass of iced tea is perfect for cooling off during a hot day - besides being calorie-free. Research suggests that tea may play a role in helping to maintain a healthy weight, as well as supporting the body's ability to fight skin cancer.
