Spend time being refreshed by God's Word with a cup of tea. Relax in a comfy chair that gets some afternoon sun. Reflect on the goodness of life.

Real joy comes not from ease or riches or
from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile. Wilfred T. Grenfell

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. Ps 100:4

How to make ice tea

Ice Tea

A frefreshing and tasting, healthy glass of iced tea is best with whole, loose leaf tea leaves.With loose tea leaves you will have a full body and flavor that you will not want to miss.  Using tea bags produce a lower quality of tea.
Making homemade iced tea is similiar to hot tea but some differences.
Here is how to make some awesome ice tea.
Use twice the amount of loose tea used in your brew (as compared to hot tea). If you prefer sweet iced tea, add rock sugar while steeping instead of white sugar to finished tea.  The rock sugar will enhance the natural sweetness of your iced tea and dissolve better in hot water.   Also, if you use flavored tea sugar may not be needed.
After the hot tea is brewed,  pour it into a glass filled almost to the top with ice. The sudden cooling keeps the flavor and scent of the tea intact. Finish it off with a slice of lemon or sprig of mint for the perfect glass of cool, refreshing iced tea.
Rooibos tea, black teas and herbal teas are great over ice. Iced green teas can be delicious  provided you choose a flavored or scented green tea that you enjoy. Mixing two or three teas together will get you a unique iced tea brew that is often better than any single tea. So try something new!
