Slipping a cup sleeve onto your cold glass filled with ice is your first step to enjoying a refreshing breakfast drink. Then begin your morning with a new idea for breakfast. Instead of a plain glass of fruit juice, brew up a pitcher of strawberry tea to drink for the week. It’s a quick and easy recipe from Taste of Home.

I brewed Twinings of London Lady Grey Tea. The Twinings tea bag describes it as a “delicious black tea with a light and gentle citrus flavor that is both relaxing and refreshing.” The citrus flavor blended well with the strawberries and lemons. Enjoy while the cup collar keeps your hands comfortable from the cold wetness on the glass!
