Well, the summer days are getting shorter. Time to unwrap those tea bags...
...crush the mint and chop the lemons.
Jess gave me this recipe for Paula Dean's sweet tea as part of a house-warming care package last year.
Just boil some water, add a few tea bags and a lot of sugar. Squeeze a few lemons, add some mint, and leave the pitcher in a sunny place to cool.
In an hour, it'll be ready to pour over ice and take out back. Then all you have to do is sip slowly while the fireflies dance and the cicadas sing.
Let me know how it turns out!
