Waiting and Ice Tea

We're in the waiting game.  Just waiting for baby.  I think all the loose ends are tied up, and now we just sit and wait.  And try not to wilt in the heat.  Seriously, this is absolutely awful weather!  I never thought June in Michigan could be this icky.  But oh, wow, is it icky.  And it doesn't look like it's going to let up any time soon.

I thank God multiple times a day for this wonderful house with air conditioning!  Being two days away from having this baby, I am so thankful that God knows what we need before we need it!

But with this heat, I thought I would pass on this fruit ice tea creation that I have been downing by the half gallons.

First, find a container.  I am a bit partial to my glass half gallon milk jug.  And then you need some black tea and whatever fruit flavor herbal tea you want.  I have used raspberry and orange.  For the half gallon I use 8 normal decaffinated black tea bags and 2 herbal bags.

Then, bring to boil enough water to fill your half gallon container 2/3 full.  Really, just eyeball this. When it reaches a boil, take it off the heat and add your tea bags.  Let them steep until it seems right to you.  Oh, and I do like my tea a bit on the sweet side.  To the half gallon, I add 1/3 cup of sugar.

Pour the tea into your container, top it off with cold water, put it in the fridge to cool off and then enjoy with a lot of ice!
