What's in your glass?

I decided it was time to do a post that wasn't about grooming or snowmobiling. I wanted to share with you my most favorite drink. I am an ice tea drinker no matter what the season. And this one is by far my favorite. I cannot find this particular tea in the regular grocery store. I get this at a local heath food store. I have tried every other vanilla hazelnut brand on the market and none are as good as this one. I bring four bags to a boil and let it sit for 10 minutes or so. Then I add enough water to make a whole gallon. I also put in about 1/4 cup of sugar just to give it a hint of sweetness. I actually have cravings for this tea! If you can find it try it!
So what's your favorite drink?
P.S. How do you like my photo Margaret? I posed my tea by a chicken like you always pose your subjects by objects :-)

oh how interesting. the only Ice Tea I know about in the UK is Liptons Ice Tea in bottles in the supermarket and it doesn't taste nice at all.

Sort of like yukky coke, without the bubbles.

There is no real market for iced tea in the UK as far as I am aware, yours sounds so interesting. But American stuff always sounds interesting to me.

We just drink tea brewed in the UK normal way, in a tea pot, with boiled water added, either leaves or tea bags.

I would like to try your kind of Iced Tea it sounds good.

We are also odd here in the UK, cos if we go to Europe,say Spain or France etc they serve tea without milk and most of us here in UK drink it with milk.

Thank you for another interesting post and nicely posed picture too!

love and light Jeannie xxxx

I drink hot Earl Grey during the day at work.
I like Crystal Light Peach Tea on ice (it's kind of a stretch to call it tea, though.)
I also like Gold Peak in the bottle. The diet kind doesn't taste diet at all. It tastes like fresh brewed sweet ice tea. It's hard to find, but is usually by the Snapples. I have my office hooked on it, and we go through withdrawals when we can't find it.
Next time I'm at the health food store, I'm going to pick up some of what you have. That looks YUMMY!
(Hey, I like that chicken picture! I'm proud of you!!)

I haven't tried that yet, I'll have to find it here. I'm a tea addict, hot or cold. I love Harney Teas...in fact I need to order some.

Nice staging for your tea pic. :)

I'm an iced tea nut too! It's my favorite drink. I wouldn't think to try that kind iced, but I have no idea why. I'm sure it's delicious. My new thing is mint white tea w/ a teeny bit of sugar.

I'm in Scotland, but born in Africa. As an adult it's always been plain old hot tea. I like Early Grey, and I like fruit teas, but good old fashioned everyday tea (with milk, no sugar) wins out in the end.
