The weather has been so nice in Michigan for the last few days and iced tea has been a great way to get in my daily tea fix. I prefer to make mine with loose leaf tea, which means an extra step from using tea bags. It is definitely worth it and so very easy. I made a little video to show you how to make iced loose tea:
Basically I steep the tea in my tea pot first without an infuser basket and then I pour the tea over a strainer into a pitcher. Today I made a blend of Teavana's Sweet Amore and Plum Harvest. Unfortunately they are no longer making Plum Harvest, so I am going to have to substitute with something else when I use the last of mine. Sweet Fruit Garden Herbal Tea may work.

On this cold and rainy Saturday, after a blissful few days of warm weather and sunshine, my thought turn to teapots. Full of beauty, but also a thing of function. The perfect place to allow tea leaves to steep, creating that wonderful cup of tea that warms the body and soul.
I know that I am on a kick of American Tea Room teas the last few days, but I just returned from a conference and got all of these new yummy samples to try. I can honestly say that I have yet to try one of their teas that I don't like. They are all so good and the quality of the ingredients is top notch. So this morning I brewed their Lady Grey tea. It is a black tea blended with cornflowers and has a citrusy & creamy aroma. Here is my daily cup of tea picture:
