Popular Food Blogger Wins Tetley "London on Ice" Recipe Competition

Trip to London Goes to Creator of 'Sparkling Blueberry Ginger Iced Tea'

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwired - June 27, 2014) - As National Iced Tea Month draws to a close, Tetley USA announced the winner of their "London on Ice" iced tea recipe contest. The beloved British tea brand challenged an exclusive group of 10 top food bloggers to "brew up something brilliant" in iced tea, using Tetley's new Black & Green blend. The prize, a trip for two to London, goes to Marla Meridith of Family Fresh Cooking (FamilyFreshCooking.com) for her winning recipe: "Sparkling Blueberry Ginger Iced Tea." The tantalizing iced tea recipe combines Tetley Black & Green, refreshing flavor combinations, and special touches like blueberry ice cubes into a delicious summer treat.

New Tetley Black & Green offers tea lovers the best of both in one cup or glass: the full flavor of black tea and the goodness of green tea. Providing the benefits of green tea without the bitter taste, this unique blend can be enjoyed hot or on ice for all-year-long enjoyment. As the winner of the "London on Ice" contest, Meridith will receive a seven-day trip for two to London, where she and a guest can steep themselves in Tetley's British culture.

"This is the first summer that Tetley Black & Green is available. While it tastes great on its own, hot or iced, we wanted to see how some of the most influential 'foodistas' would choose to summer brew it," said Marc Birnbaum, Marketing Executive at Tetley USA. "We were absolutely wowed by all the recipes, but Ms. Meridith's 'Sparkline Blueberry Ginger Iced Tea' used our tea in the perfect way to display its unique flavor while still doing something new and exciting."

"It's a true honor that the judges chose my Sparkling Blueberry Ginger Iced Tea as the winning recipe for the Tetley London On Ice Contest," said Marla Meridith, the force behind FamilyFreshCooking.com, a popular food blog that offers family friendly recipes with stunning photography. A native of New York, Meridith now resides in Telluride, Colorado with her family and is a sports and outdoors enthusiast, lover of travel, and an aspiring sommelier. "I had a tasty time working with Tetley Black & Green and I'm looking forward to a delightful adventure in the UK. I can't wait to share the experience with my readers!"
