Mixing Tea: Arnold Palmer Style!

Today I decided to do something a little bit experimental. I wanted caffeine, but at the same time I wanted something sweet. So I steeped some of Teavana's Strawberry Lemonade tea for about 5 minutes. The longer you steep the sweet tea, the sweeter it will be. Then, after removing the Strawberry Lemonade tea I added some Adagio's Irish Breakfast to my infuser and let that steep about 3 minutes. I then had made my own Arnold Palmer. If you're not familiar with an Arnold Palmer, it's a drink in the United States where you mix 1 part lemonade and one part Iced (black) tea. It's enjoyed mostly in the summertime because it's refreshing with a little bit of sweetness added. Or, if you love tea all year round like I do, you can enjoy this beverage in the winter. In the U.S. Arnold Palmers are sold locally in cans, you don't even have to lift a finger.Here's the result. Adding milk is optional, of course!I love this drink because it's sweet and it still has caffeine. Stay tuned for an upcoming guest post by artist Carne Griffiths, innovative artist that uses tea as one of his mediums for painting! Tweet me if you have any questions for him!
