Feeling just peachy!
Do you love the fruits of summer as much as I do? I love to see fresh peaches and berries show up in the markets and grocery stores, and I think my tastebuds are more frequently drawn to fruit and fruit-flavored drinks at this time of year. I enjoyed the new peach milkshake I had at Chick-fil-A this week, and I also liked the new Peach Infused Petals Iced Tea Mix I picked up at Fabulous by Design in downtown Newnan yesterday. I'd seen this new (to me) mix at T.J. Maxx but thought it was a bit expensive for the box of just six packets. Turns out it's currently half off at FBD (marked down from $7.50 to $3.75), and while you're making up your mind which of the flavors to buy you can also browse the gorgeous fabrics and, a surprise find, bolts and bolts of beautiful vintage trims.
I can't seem to remember to read the label before buying new teas, so I was a bit surprised to find each packet contains 23 grams of sugar. But it's all natural, organic cane sugar, and I love the convenience of being able to make just a single glass of iced tea when I want. So I would definitely buy this tea again, I just won't drink it every day!
This tea was prepared in my favorite tea glass, one of only two remaining from the set of four I found at a Hallmark store many years ago. Can you see that it says TEA on the glass? If you turn it around, it also says TEE and TE' and THE'. I've seen green glass versions of this at World Market (think "pale green" like the color of a Coca-Cola glass), but I've never been able to find clear ones again. If I ever do, you can bet I'll stock up!
