photo-7This summer thus far, has been pretty beautiful. Usually Calgary summers consist of one week of “scorching” hot followed by well… Fall. This year, I think I can actually say we’ve had a “Summer” season.

I’ve recently found a recipe online for home made iced tea, which is quick and easy to make! All you need is: Tea bags (I had orange pekoe), 1/2 cup of sugar, and lemons (~1/2 sliced into thin slices).


1. Boil 4 cups of water in a pot. Once to a boil, set aside and put in your tea bags (3). Let it steam for about 5 minutes (longer if you like it more concentrated).

2. Add in your sugar (while it’s still hot) and stir to dissolve.

3. Let it cool down and then you can pour it into a pitcher and add your lemon.

What a nice way to cool off!
