iced tea

Adam says that this looks like a glass of pee. It's not; it's iced tea made from a tea concentrate I made, inspired by this post. I drink water 99% of the time, but on hot days (like for the past week, when it's been hovering around 27 degrees celsius) when I want to stay hydrated, the last thing I want is a sugary drink. So this is a great alternative, and much better than water with lemon (which I must say I'm not a huge fan of). I placed three regular (i.e. Red Rose) tea bags in a mason jar, filled it with cold water, and tucked it in the fridge overnight. I squeezed out the bags in the morning, and add a few tablespoons into a glass of cold water - yum! I added a tiny bit of honey to the glass for a bit of sweetness, but it really didn't make it much better. Maybe I'll try some maple sugar next time. And with mint tea and other herbal teas - I think that will be fantastic. You can see the original post I was inspired by here.

P.S.: I'm done work for the summer! Yay!


  1. Hee hee! You drink pee?! Just kidding... I've been wanting to try AC's tea concentrate since I saw that post. Sounds good!

  2. Good idea on the concentrate!! I usually just throw 2 bags into 1L of water. I then add 2 slices of each of lemon and lime...I add 5 Tbsp of sugar which only makes it faintly sweet, you could probably use honey too but since it is sweeter I would try 4 Tbsp first...then I let it sit in the sun for a few hours to brew! Pour a glass...add a few ice cubes and delicious!
