Mint Honey Iced Tea
Even though fall is here, I decided over the weekend that since it was still pretty warm here in Georgia it would be OK to try one more iced tea. Besides, it's October before it really starts to *feel* like fall anyway. Have any of you tried this tea from Mary-Lake Thompson Ltd.?
This Mint Honey Iced Tea is a product I've seen a few times before but refrained from trying. It was on sale at a quilt store in Marietta the other day, so I decided the time was right for sampling. (And since this design is printed on fabric, I simply can't bring myself to throw it away. Maybe I can work it into a tea-themed project one day ...)
For some reason I was expecting this to be iced tea mix, but inside the package were four giant teabags for brewing four cups of tea each. The ingredients include organic spearmint, organic dried honey and organic lemon myrtle. I really enjoyed the cool, minty flavor of the iced tea I made, although I did decide to add sweetener to my glass of tea. This is not the sort of thing I would normally buy for myself, but if I come across it again I just may have to get some as gifts for tea-loving friends.
