The best iced tea ever!
Jeanne's elixir ~ a wonderful herbal blend of lemon myrtle,
chamomile, lavender, rose, spearmint and peppermint.
I brewed enough to keep in the refrigerator during this ongoing
heatwave . . . . . . . . . .
When visiting Jeanne's beautiful farm in New Hampshire
last month, we sipped this same tea in her sun room looking out
across the stunning landscape toward the mountains . . . . . and she
kindly gifted me with this jar of the blend to bring home.

Iced tea, the northern name, is usually called sweet tea here in the south
and brewed from black or green tea leaves. A form of tea that is brewed
cold to begin with, and then mixed with ice, it’s almost always
heavily sweetened, especially if you order it away from home.
Though I've lived in the south over forty years where sweet tea is a
legendary drink on hot or cold days, I have to admit I am not a lover of it,
perhaps imbibing only a few times. Iced coffee, yes, yes, yes, love it,
especially on a hot day like today and all the past days recently when
temperatures hovering around 100F continue to be the norm.
Hot tea I enjoy anytime, black, green and herbal.
Recently I tried Kombucha for the first time. This brand
is made by a local company
It was quite refreshing but after reading that it may
not be a healthy alternative I doubt I will drink it often.
If tea is not your choice of beverage but you want a refreshing fizzy drink,
I tried this one. Nothing outstanding regarding flavor, very subtle, but
Pellegrino by name alone makes one feel Italian, and the tall skinny can
is very attractive if you're a visual person, lol!!!!
Hey friends, these days anything different that might make one
feel special is good!
