Sweet Summer Tea


My favorite ice tea lately is Tazo Tea's Passion. It's an herbal infusion with hibiscus and citrus notes and it's caffeine free. I boil some water on the stove and mix in a little stevia (or sugar) and two cinnamon sticks and several tea bags and let it steep for a while. Then add water and ice and it's so refreshing. Starbucks carries the large, full-leaf bags and you only need to use four for a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Sometimes I add fresh squeezed oranges for a very special summer beverage :) Enjoy!!
