We had a particularly hot weekend recently and after working on the yard all morning, Eric and I stopped to relax on the deck with a glass of iced tea. We needed to refresh and recharge because we had an event we needed to get to in a couple of hours. We both found that we were craving iced tea so I went for my Jug of Lipton Iced Tea and poured us a couple of ice filled glasses. It was unsweetened because that’s how I usually like it.
Eric wanted a bit of sugar in his and that’s when I was hit by discovery number two: Iced tea is pretty much the only beverage that is regularly customized. You could have a family meal centered around a jug of Lipton iced tea, and everyone could have their preference of sweetened, unsweetened, with lemon flavor , without lemon flavor, with something else… mint? Tea is so versatile that way. My two favorite ways to enjoy Lipton Iced Tea – is in the peach and lemon flavors.
We sat for a little while and talked first about tea, and then more about the things that are important to us. We talked about my plans for my garden, and visiting my parent’s to pick fresh blueberries and make pie. As we brightened up after sipping our iced tea, we decided to prepare a quick lunch before we went, so we could enjoy a few more moments on the deck. The iced tea really helped us to savor and appreciate the moment and we wanted to make that moment last. Inspired by Lipton Iced Tea, I decided to reinvent one of my favorite recipes for a fun, light, afternoon bite. What I love about this recipe is that it is so simple – chicken, mint, peach, and of course Lipton Iced Tea in lemon and peach flavors.
The tea really made our meal as we came to appreciate that it is moments like this that matter most. It was the perfect opportunity to detach from the busy world around us to find inspiration through optimism and enjoyment. Make sure to check out Bright Bites.
