McAlister’s Deli to celebrate its 5th annual ‘Free Tea Day’ with a sweet summer sweepstakes

If you haven’t guessed by now, I have a thing for tea. It is about the only thing I drink besides water, and I love trying new varieties, flavors and mixes.

Imagine my surprise to learn that there is actually a “Free Tea Day” at McAlister’s Deli. Yes, there really is. It is Thursday, July 25 and I think it was invented just for me.
