Iced tea season arrives
We had gorgeous weather yesterday, and with temperatures here in Georgia in the mid-seventies this week, I'd say that the time for iced tea has definitely arrived. My favorite way to make iced tea is the refrigerator method, where you simply let the loose tea "swim around" in a pitcher in the refrigerator overnight.
This is a closeup of the fridge tea version of Teavana's Key Lime Rooibos, which the company describes as "a tropical blend of green Rooibos, papaya, mango, peach, citrus, rose and marigold flowers." I've made everything from plain black teas to flavored teas and green teas by this method, but I think the fruity/citrusy teas are my favorite.
Although this wasn't "Sun Tea," I still enjoy using this glass I found at World Market last year: "Fresh Brewed Iced Tea Sun Tea." And I realized the tea selection around here has gotten pretty boring lately, so I ordered some new varieties from Upton Tea over the weekend. Hopefully, soon I'll have some new teas - and refrigerator brewed teas - to share with you!
