Do you love tea as much as I do?

I think my love of tea developed from growing up visiting my grandma every weekend. My grandma loved her tea, and she had a range of different teas. Some are teabags meant for everyday drinking, others are premium teas shipped from China meant for special occasions.

I now have a collection too, but mine are the everyday types. Depending on what I feel like having, I just have to reach in there and pick one out for myself. But what I love most about teas is that you can have them hot or cold. Hot during the cold winter months, and cold during the warmer spring and summer months. And they go well with pretty much anything you’re eating.

I love that it’s finally starting to warm up in the San Francisco area. It’s finally starting to feel like spring. Warm sunny days, cool breezes. So I thought this would be the perfect time to start with a iced tea drink. If it’s still not warm enough for this iced tea lemonade, you can always save it for when it does get warmer.
