|In the cool weather we drink hot tea all day. In the warm weather, we’ve been drinking eight or so bottles of iced tea daily.
A key difference: Hot tea doesn’t create landfill; bottled iced tea does.
So as much as we love certain bottled teas and still enjoy them, we’ve been focusing on brewing our own.
First, the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker, our new favorite appliance, makes it a snap. This machine is so much fun—and produces such good results—we can’t say enough about it.
Second, we can brew a different type of tea each time (which in our case is two brewings a day): Earl Grey, jasmine tea (perhaps our favorite iced tea), green tea and whatever comes our way. Peach iced tea and blackberry iced tea were two recent brewings.
Home-brewing top-quality tea results in such a delicious drink that no sugar is needed. While lemon or lime adds calorie-free antioxidants, they’re not needed for flavor.
Spare the landfill: brew your own!
|Try it—and if you pick up a Breville One-Touch Tea Maker along the way, you won’t be disappointed. It’s not inexpensive, but it is so, so worth it!
