It is hot. HOT. Heat index has been over 100F. No fall temps showing up here. High tomorrow 96F so heat index will be way up again. I am making iced tea almost day and we are downing it just as fast as we can.

We are pretty excited because the low Saturday night is supposed to in the 60’s. We plan to sit outside until we shiver (yes, we are wimps and shiver at 65F when we have been enduring 104F) because we want to get chilly enough to cuddle that teacup!

This one is nice and peachy/fruity. I like hot or cold. I am using three teabags and resteeping, pouring the hot tea over sugar and chilling. It is really refreshing and I am getting a gallon out of each three bags. Yes, it could be stronger but I want to be economical and there is enough flavor to satisfy.

LOL! I am waiting to shiver at 65F, too. We’ve had a lot of rain but it’s made everything more humid rather than lowering the temps. The tea sounds fantastic.

Stay hydrated and cool!

Come see us…it’s a few days out, but Wednesday’s high is scheduled to be a lovely 65!

(We call Revolution Tea “Truck Stop Tea” because it’s the brand at the coffee station at our local Flying J.)

White Antlers: Ugh, yes! The humidity is what is tearing us up! We have had a rare lower humidity evening here and there and it feels blissful!

Gmathis: Sounds like a fancy truck stop!

It is 99F right now for heat index. Next Wednesday our high is 85 and low is 73. Every day for the next two weeks is sticking in the 80s, mostly mid to high 80s. I’ll trade ya! But Sunday night we should have a low of 63! Happy dance!!!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
