With our recent move to Utah and taking huge steps to buy a new (to us) house, we have stayed unusually busy with furnishing our place and aiming to make our house a home. Moving across the country has also been a learning experience for us. We’ve learned that sometimes you make commitments that are harder to keep than you forsee them being, moving and making your house feel like home takes time and doesn’t happen overnight, keeping a healthy schedule while taking care of yourself and trying to make new friends is also hard.
One of our big projects with owning our first house is that we wanted an outdoor space to entertain. We have a few upcoming projects that fall into this theme, including a backyard deck. Being true to one of our lessons we’ve learned above, building things also take time and unexpected situations happen that can prevent your schedule from going as planned. While the deck project is still in progress, we’ve been able to take advantage of our front porch. And we have been loving it! And what better way to enjoy the summer than to make some sweet summer tea and sit on your porch in the evenings with friends?
Today we are partnering with Williams Sonoma to share a quick and easy tea recipe using their Jasmine Green Tea. Feel free to give this simple recipe a try and then invite friends over to share with on your porch!
Williams Sonoma Jasmine Green Tea
Seasonal fruits (we used oranges, blackberries, and garnished with mint)
Step 1: Heat water in a medium pan to a boil with at least 3 Jasmine Green Tea packets added. Once boiling, turn the heat off on the stove. Add a few tablespoons of honey and stir in.
Step 2: Once tea has cooled, give it a taste and add honey to your sweetness liking.
Step 3: Remove tea bags and pour into pitcher. Add seasonal fruit and ice. Add a garnish of mint to give an extra refreshing flavor. Serve up and enjoy with your neighbors!
