All in all, it's a pretty good summer, at least compared to last year when it seemed more like a mild winter. Today it's in the 90s and it's prompted me to make some pineapple iced green tea - even the thought seems cooling. It's one of Zhena's Gypsy Blends and all I do is simply put the bag (this kind is meant to make a quart) into a quart pitcher of cold water and leave it in the fridge overnight. That's all you need to do to get delicious iced tea with no bitterness or harsh overtones. It's also the easiest way to make iced tea. Try it with some bags of your favorite blends or with tea bags that you're not crazy about - oddly enough, the tea you may hate hot may be great iced and vice versa.
So the house is hot and I'm thinking natchos in the microwave may be the way to go this evening - although what I really want is ice cream!
