This button is likely tied to an advertising campaign for tea imported from India, Ceylon, and Sumatra. In the late 1930s, "Tea Keeps You Cool" advertisements appeared in various magazines and newspapers, promoting iced tea as a refreshing beverage. By the 1930s, iced tea had become popular in the U.S. due to Prohibition, as people were searching for alternatives to alcoholic drinks.
