 I have to say, drinks are definitely one of my favorite parts of summer! There is nothing like sitting out on a hot day with a cold drink in hand! mmm. During Christmas I love drinking apple cider, and this Maple Spiced Iced Tea is totally the Summer equivalent. And besides, we all love tea right? :) Give it a try!


 Adapted from the recipe



  • 6 tsp loose leaf green tea.
  • 5 or 6 Whole Star Anise
  • 2 Lemons sliced.
  • 6 Cups Water

  2. Turn heat off and add green tea, star anise and one of the sliced lemons.
