Good morning, tea sippers! Today, as we desperately try to hold onto those sweet and warm summer days we will be once again featuring our most popular tea ware product, our Mist tea pitcher! If you are a long time blog subscriber with us, you know that I have spoken of this before (I'll link those previous posts below), but because it is such a staple with us here, I figured it deserved another mention and feature.
(Plus, we just received a new shipment of these so hurry up and grab yourself one because they don't last long around here!)
1. Cover the bottom of your pitcher with your favorite loose leaf tea. That amounts to approximately 2 heaping tablespoons of tea.
2. Fill the remainder of your pitcher with room temperature water.
**Feel free to add your favorite sweetener such as sugar, agave, maple syrup, or whatever you prefer as well as any other component you see fit. Perhaps a citrus component or some berries may be good here!
3. Place your pitcher in the fridge for 2-6 hours. (I usually let mine work it's magic over night, and wake up to a fresh pitcher of tea in the morning!)
Wah-lah, as I always say! You have just made yourself a delicious pitcher of iced tea to be enjoyed throughout your day and into the evening.
There are so many reasons to love this pitcher but let me outline a few for you. First, the strainer is included right within the pitcher itself, so you don't have to mess around with filtering your loose leaf tea out for each individual glass. You can just leave your tea within the pitcher whilst enjoying and dump it out once you finish the pitcher in its entirety. You will notice some swelling in the pieces, especially with our tisanes, but this is normal and is just ensuring that you are getting all of the flavors out of your tea.
If you choose to give this unmatchable piece of tea ware a go, let us know what you think. We love to hear your feedback and use it as we choose which pieces to continue adding to our inventory. We hope that you all have a wonderful remainder of your week and are able to get out and enjoy the weekend. Happy sipping! - Kaytea :)
