We are winding up here in the US for barbecue time! I am so excited to get back outside and make memories by spending time with my family and friends enjoying great food and drink. One thing hard about picnics is balancing all the tasty food with still taking care of our health. We often take in so many thoughtless calories through the beverages we drink. By using a base of tea, I have the strong and beautiful summer flavors of berries, without the calories and sugar. I want to keep it fun and exciting though, so I put a new twist on an old barbecue favorite with my family-friendly berry sangria!

All year-long I drink the teas from the family-owned, US-based company, Bigelow. Drinking their teas makes me feel good, because they taste great, but I also know that I am supporting a good company and family. They have such a variety, as seen above at my local Walmart, that I have my favorites for every season and occasion. I have even been able to explore their tea plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. Do you know what tea looks like as it grows and the difference between types of teas? Read on to find out of for more about that experience.
