There is nothing I love more than a cup or glass of tea – hot or cold, winter or summer. We grow herbs, pick fruits, leaves, stems and blend them together into all sorts of concoctions. But there is nothing that says summer like a glass of southern sweet tea.


Bring 2 quarts water to a boil
Add 3 Choice Organic Black Tea bags
Steep for 3-5 minutes
Combine in (tempered) glass pitcher steeped tea and 1 cup organic brown sugar

Add 2 sprigs of fresh peppermint when tea is cooled and serve over ice.

** I have broken many a beautiful, vintage tea pitcher with water that is too hot. Be sure to use tempered glass or wait until the water is cooler to pour into your glass container.
