Summer Ice Tea

We don't live in the south but I do enjoy iced tea. This is one of my favorite recipes. It really is never the same twice at my house, cause I can't remember what teas I used. Typical fashion for me. I really am liking TAZO Passion tea lately, but use whatever you have on hand.

Choose 10 teas from your cupboard. Eight herbal teas, such as lemon, chamomile, mint, and hibiscus, and mix with one to two bags of Earl Grey or English Breakfast. Hang the tea bags into an 8-cup Pyrex container. Pour boiling water over the tea, and steep for at least 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup sugar or Splenda, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Add lemon if desired. Even my husband likes this tea. Recipe is from Martha Stewart.

Enjoy!

I enjoy your blog, and this post inspired me to write a brief one of my own about my grandmother's tea pitcher. Happy Junking!

LOVE the house numbers! I am pretty sure that is the same font I am using in my dining room. It looks perfect there. Kudos!
