      I made this recipe for the " Beach Party " in the Photo Forum,since most teas taste better the day after you make them, this was made on 8/11/12.And since my SO and I don't drink a lot of tea, only half was made. This will surely satisfy any thirst on a hot day.Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling "

      There's something wrong with my weather. Non-stop sunshine, no rain and blue skies in February.
