#FlashbackFriday – How To Make Good Old-Fashioned Iced Tea…

It’s Flashback Friday, and it’s time to celebrate…with a glass of good old-fashioned iced tea, like they make in jolly old England!

Ever wonder how to make good old-fashioned iced tea?  Well, put on your best British accent, crank up “God Save the Queen,” and let our narrator tell you all about how it’s done!

In this 1991 commercial for Mr. Coffee’s Iced Tea Maker, our eloquent British voiceover informs you, the viewer, about the steps to make good old-fashioned ice tea, from kettle on the flame to…oh, well, it’s still on the flame.

But you must check the kettle in between each task.  Because vital!

But what’s this?  An iced tea maker?!  And it makes fresh iced tea in less time than it takes it boil water?!

But just think of how much you can get done while…

Seriously, do you really want to wait that long for iced tea?

Our American Voiceover suggests the wonder of the Iced Tea Pot by Mr. Coffee.  What will they think of next?

Well played, Mr. Coffee.  Well played.

But why take the carefully crafted words of this Yankee into consideration, when Mr. British and Ms. American Voiceover can tell you all about how to make iced tea?

And there you have it, the proper way to make good old-fashioned iced tea.

I never said it was easy.

Have a great Friday, and a fantastic weekend!
