Relax in the Garden with Iced Tea

Enjoy these delicious Tea Sandwiches

 

April is Earth Month, and doesn’t that make you want to get outside and enjoy nature? Rory and I love taking the time to refresh ourselves over tea. So, in the spring and summer, we shake things up a bit and do tea in the garden — serving iced tea instead of hot. We whip up some tasty tea sandwiches and head outside.

There is something so honest and simple about enjoying the flowers in bloom, watching the birds fly by and listening to them sing. Revitalize your spirit and relax in the garden with some iced tea and tea sandwiches.

Honest® Tea is our iced tea of choice — real, pure tea made from quality ingredients that are plainly written on the label, and NO ADDED SUGAR. One sip is all it takes to taste the HONEST difference. We also make our tea sandwiches with simple ingredients. In fact, one of the sandwiches I am sharing today includes the NEW Peach Ginger flavor of Honest® Tea. The Peach Ginger tea has a bright, refreshing, and fruity flavor that is absolutely amazing.

Tea sandwiches are so easy, there is really not any measuring to be done. Just simple ingredients added to taste.

Let’s get fixing our Tea Sandwiches!

 

Peach Ginger, Cream Cheese, and Nuts

Ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Nuts – chopped fine (I used pecan, but you can use whatever you like)
  • Peach – fresh is best (if using canned, drain well)
  • Peach Ginger Honest® Tea
  • Bread (I used white bread)

Directions:

  1. There are no measurements. Just add ingredients to taste and to the amount you need for serving.
  2. Cut Peach slices into small bites.
  3. In a bowl, add Cream Cheese, peaches, and Nuts.
  4. Pour a little Peach Ginger Tea into the bowl and begin mixing.
  5. Add tea a little at a time until the mixture is creamy and easy to spread
  6. Cut the crusts off your bread.

Helpful Hint:

As you are making your tea sandwiches, cover them with a damp paper towel to keep them from drying out while you prepare the others. It’s a simple and easy trick.

 

 

Having our tea outdoors makes us think about how much we enjoy our garden and nature in general. So, we are thrilled that Honest® Tea is so environmentally conscious. Everything about Honest is about simple, clear honesty, and transparency. From the fresh ingredients to the commitment to sustainability and recycling to eliminate waste. Honest likes to stay connected to the people and communities that grow, pluck, and brew their tea. And they help promote organic agriculture, fair trade, community improvement, and more.

How are you helping? April is Earth month, you can help celebrate our planet by recycling your cans and bottles, or picking up trash in the park or at the beach. Or how about releasing some ladybugs in your garden? Get your kids involved, it would be a great activity for the entire family.

 

If you are looking for a fantastic and refreshing iced tea, you will love Honest® Tea. The NEW Peach Ginger flavor is absolutely delicious, but they have several other flavors such as Pomegranate, Peach, and Honey Green Tea. Find them at your local Kroger or Kroger division store.
