I’ve got a peaceful morning routine ‘round these parts. I’ve told y’all about it before.
But, once the sun starts to get a little higher in the sky and Spring is in the air, I add another 30 seconds to my routine: I make us fresh iced tea every morning.
When I reach for my morning tea cup, I also pull out 2 mason jars
I put 2 black tea bags into each jar.
I pour enough boiling water into each jar to come up half-way.
Then, I remove the tea bags, fill the rest of the jar with cold water, cover and refrigerate.
If I’m feeling particularly fancy, I add a splash of peach nectar to make peach iced tea. It’s Mr. Dessert For Two’s favorite drink in the world (besides moonshine; more of that coming soon!), and I’m more than happy to make it for him.
I have other variations up my sleeve too:
-one bag of black tea, one bag of lemon herbal tea
-one bag of black tea, one bag of mint herbal tea
-a spoonful of sugar in the bottom of the jar to make sweet tea
-a strip of orange or lemon zest, or even a few hibiscus flowers
