The First one is a book by Tracy Stern.
Next up...who does not love a Country Tea Party? This book is by Maggie Stuckey.
Inside this beautifully illustrated book is a collection of themed Tea Party's according to the months of the year....July is Tea and Roses♥
Now envision yourself in a Floral Garden for an Afternoon Tea Party. This next book is by Susannah Blake.
The Recipe's and the Photo's in each of these books are so delightful!!!! Perhaps you could take a day to spend time in a book store and browse through them. I can bet that you will come home with at least one! If so, let me know..I would love to hear what you think♥
So....I have also a video for you to enjoy. I filmed this back in January and speak about the tea's I was loving then and still do enjoy.
Since we are into the Summer Solstice, I am drinking a lot of Iced Tea's. I have been making all sorts of yummy concoctions. Currently, I an enjoying a fresh pitcher of Earl Grey Tea. It is so yummy either alone or with a bit of cream. My method for iced tea is very simple, I fill up a pitcher with hot water...add three to four tea bags and let it steep. Sometimes, I will put the pitcher outside to sit in the sun. Either way, it turns out perfect every time. I recommend to remove the tea bags as soon as the color is what you enjoy....light for a weaker tea and dark for a strong tea. I prefer a stronger Tea myself.
How do you make your Iced Tea? What is your favorite? Have a recipe to share for the perfect Iced Tea Blend?
