Prairie Spice Pear: the perfect tea for holiday dinners
The snow just keeps falling. Softly, gently. With none of the four-letter "w" word that usually sends it screaming past our doorsteps on a horizontal assault. Happy Thanksgiving from Montana, dear tea lovers.
If you've already welcomed your guests in from the cold with an Aah Apricot Oolong warm up and apricot compote, well, you're already in the race for host of the year. Let's carry that title proudly and run with it.

How to make loose-leaf iced tea
Making this loose leaf tea into an iced beauty for the whole table is a cinch. Here's how: let's say you want to make a whole gallon. We'll go ahead and do the math for you... because we like you like that! We recommend 1 tsp. of tea leaves for 8 oz. of water, so for a gallon of tea, that equates to roughly 1/4 cup of leaves.
For iced tea, we'll brew half the water in all the leaves. You'll need two pitchers or pouring containers for this. Bring a half gallon to near boiling (ideal water temp for white tea is 180-185*F). Pour the water over the leaves in the first pitcher, and brew for 4 minutes. Then, use a strainer to catch the leaves while pouring into your serving pitcher. Allow it to cool, then fill the pitcher with ice and water as needed. Enjoy!
