Orange Earl Grey Iced Tea

We’ve had such beautiful weather this weekend 🙂 You would never say that its been raining for 2 weeks straight, but who cares when you have such amazingly beautiful days without a cloud in the sky and what goes better with beautiful days than Iced tea!  

I’m a bit of a tea freak, I’ve got all sorts of tea I’ve got masala tea all the way from India, jasmine tea, rooibos tea, pomegranate rooibos and lots more, but my favorite tea is earl grey!  I don’t know what it is about it, but I just love the flavor explosion that earl grey gives me.

 I also had a lot of oranges that I got from my parents so I decided to add it with the earl grey and boy o boy was it refreshing.  This is a great drink for HOT days.
