Anyways, I say all of that to say this....they drink an awful lot of "sweet tea" on that show. I would too if I live in Louisiana. And as it is the season of sun and I do really like tea (hot or cold) I discovered this new recipe that I had to try. My spearmint plant drove me to this recipe as it was growing out of control. But hey, now its gonna be real short....really short as I LOVE this iced tea!
This recipe is a blend of fresh herbs, spices, and black tea. A wonderful combo that will brighten your day. So let's get making some tea. Si would be proud.....;)
