    I got a lovely tea jug for Christmas from my DD. I am steeping a lovely iced tea as we speak. Hoping to get a lot of use out of it in the next few months.

    If you are ever in the Charleston, SC area, then you may want to take a tour of the Charleston Tea Plantation there. I enjoyed the tour. You can taste various iced teas and then purchase boxes of tea to bring back home.
