Meadow Tea





hey guys :) i know i haven't blogged on here for a few weeks, and i'm sorry about that.  i don't know... i guess i got caught up in other things a little too much ^-^

and as i was thinking of what to post today, i thought about a recipe, but was just like "nah...you all don't want that."  and you know what...you still might not like one.  well, i'm already doing it. too late.

So I think the first thing you should know is that I'm not a cook.  Like yeah.

I can fry up a pretty mean scrambled egg, but that's an egg. Not really a huge accomplishment.  Give me a huge recipe that requires plenty of time and patience, and you might not get that good of a turnout.  You might get a pretty bad one actually.  Point is - I'm not the greatest chef out there.  I'm not anywhere near to a chef for that matter.  So if I'm going to post a recipe on this blog...uhh...you can probably imagine the amount of brain-wracking that went on beforehand. Actually you probably can't. that's okay.   So I settled for something nice and easy, that I love and you might too.

Tea.  you know, I did do a post about tea before too, now that I think about it.  ^-^
Let's just run through it really quick.



Step 1.  (EEEK.  I get to say "step 1".  HOW AWESOME) You're probably going to want to pick some peppermint tea leaves.  You know, I'm just guessing.  Since it's peppermint tea, you might want tea leaves. 
Actually I'm pretty positive. 





Step 2.  You'll want to rinse the leaves off...to get rid of the creepy-crawlies in there. 



Step 3.  Add it to as much water as you want and before adding the leaves in, bring the water to a boil and then add the leaves in to soak. 



Step 4.  Add sugar or preferably honey to the container you're going to pour the tea into. 


 Step 5.  So here's the fun part.  We get to strain the tea into a pitcher and watch it turn into amazing, sweet meadow tea ♥






So yup :) That's about it.
So what did you think about this different type of post? Yay or nay? (^-^)
Anyways, I have some ideas for this summer, plus...hopefully a new design :) But, you guys know how it went last time I wanted to re-design.  *cough* ahem...did not happen for a few months.  xD Still though, I'm pretty excited for this summer =)


have a fabulous week & don't forget - you are amazing. 
autumn

  3. I'm craving for this right now! It's cool to make tea and that you can make it... My parents don't trust me with the kitchen because I burn stuff. So how I am supposed to learn to drive with my learner's permit if they don't trust me in the kitchen??? D: I guess we're both kind of in the same boat!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Thanks, Lauren :) That's completely understandable. I'm actually not that big of a fan of hot tea, it's just the colder, summer-y ones like these that I really like.
