::Lemony Sweet Tea::

I discovered this recipe from Martha Stewart…it’s the perfect drink for a typical California day! When the temperatures are getting close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees celsius) you will do anything for a cold refreshment….and why not a tasty one! This recipe is great with fresh mint! Hope you try it sometime, it’s simple and delicious.


    • 7 cups water
    • 6 orange pekoe tea bags
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1 1/3 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish

1. Bring 4 cups of the water to a boil in a medium saucepan and add the tea bags. Remove the pan from the heat, cover it, and allow the tea bags to steep for 5 minutes

2. Remove and discard the tea bags. Add the sugar to the saucepan and stir until dissolved. Add the remaining 3 cups water and stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to a pitcher, and add the lemon juice. Chill thoroughly before serving. 

3. Serve over ice, in tall glasses garnished with mint sprigs.
