Granny Squibb’s Iced Tea

Granny Squibb’s Iced Teas are loaded with real fruit JUICE (never FLAVORS), sweetened with pure cane sugar, and perfected with a touch of mint that tastes as if fresh picked. They are packaged in environmentally friendly glass bottles that give them a long shelf life and help keep them icy cold.

The Story: Granny’s First Batch of Iced Tea

It all started one hot August day in the in the early 1930’s. Sarah (Sally) and George Squibb and their kids were spending the summer in a new house they had just built overlooking Narragansett Bay in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. Granny said it had been hotter than ever that summer and even the sea breezes couldn’t keep them cool. So she decided it was a good time to try out a recipe she’d gotten from her mother-in-law for a new drink called iced tea. None of them had ever heard of it before! Granny made up a batch using black tea, juice squeezed from fresh lemons, granulated cane sugar, spring water from their well, and mint that grew wild by the brook. She said it was astonishingly delicious! Incredibly refreshing! They loved it right away and it became a staple in their house.

As children, the Squibb grandkids gulped down Granny’s iced tea all summer long. There was always plenty for the taking in a white enameled pitcher in the icebox in the back pantry.  Granny also kept chocolate chip cookies in a glass cookie jar and popsicles in the deep freeze.

The iced tea recipe spread from family to friends and neighbors throughout South County. For years it’s been served at local yacht club, church fairs, weddings, and fundraisers. A long time ago the town even gave it the name of “Granny Squibb’s”.

About Granny Squibb’s  Iced Teas

Granny Squibb’s original Lemon/Mint Tea is an “astonishingly delicious” premium, all-natural iced tea. It’s perfect blend of ingredients gives it a homemade taste and freshness unlike any other beverage on the market today. It’s not-too-sweet flavor of lemon and mint not only tastes great but is incredibly refreshing and thirst quenching to boot.

It is made from carefully selected, all-natural premium ingredients, sweetened with pure cane sugar and loaded with lemon juice. Granny’s is packaged in 16-ounce environmentally friendly glass bottles that give the product a long shelf life and help keep it icy cold.

The Squibbwreck (Granny Squibb’s Mojito/Lime and rum) has become a real hit amongst all age groups, and the Raspberry/Lime has given the older two a run for their money.  Granny certainly would not mind, especially with all the new flavors coming soon!
