It’s springtime!! I’m so excited for the 50’s to consistently be here. The rain comes & goes & it’s just positively lovely. I so love North Idaho – if you have never been up this way- I strongly encourage you to come see it for yourself.
So anyhow- I was really craving a light & refreshing drink. Something that I could have through spring & summer & that is something the whole family could enjoy. I love drinking green tea – but I wanted something a little different. Green tea is so good for you I so I like to find new ways to enjoy it. I came up with this Blueberry Lemon Green Tea that fit everything I was looking for. It has the perfect bit of lemon & the blueberries just gave me a smile.
This is the perfect drink to enjoy while dining al fresco on a sunny afternoon.

This sounds so refreshing! Our temps have already reached 80+ degrees here in CA, and this would be perfect for sipping on the front porch. Pinned! ~Lisa
