Collection: Granny Squibb’s Organic Iced Tea


Made in Providence, RI


Granny Squibb’s Granny said it all began one hot August day in the early 1930’s. My grandparents, Sally and George Squibb, and their two sons were spending the summer in a new house they had built overlooking Narragansett Bay in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. The weather was hotter than ever. Not even the sea breezes could keep them cool. Granny remembered a recipe that had been given to her years earlier by her mother-in-law for COLD tea, still a novelty in those days. She brewed black tea and fresh mint, squeezed juice from lemons, added sugar and quickly chilled it. Granny said it was amazingly refreshing and thirst quenching, but best of all, it was “astonishingly delicious”! She delighted in sharing the recipe, and it spread quickly throughout the community where the home-brew has been a summer tradition enjoyed by generations to this day.

Granny was ahead of her time and eager to try anything new. She believed in living well and taking advantage of the best life has to offer. She encouraged me try everything and to give it my best shot. “Never say never”, she said over and over again. Granny wouldn’t have thought twice about taking on Coke® and Pepsi®, and it’s that spirit of hers which has been the inspiration for founding The Granny Squibb Company.
