This is the new Summer French Iced Tea from Mariage Freres, Paris. The galss jar is beautiful with a cap that doubles as a measuring cup of the tea leaves which is black tea with white blossoms and violets. In a jug of about 4 cups or 1 litre filled with room temperature water, add the pouch of tea leaves and then put the jug in the fridge for at least 1 hour or 2. Take out and add liquid sugar if needed. The cool tea is fragrant and pure enjoyment.
I also got a cook book of cuisine using tea. I will try.

I went to UBC botanical garden today in the morning to have a quick walk in the forest. Sinofranchetia chinensis is flowering. I love this plant. I have 3 in my garden now all came from the same source. One is a plant from cutting and 2 others from seeds. So far, the plants like climbing onto trees the best. It is hardy here in Vancouver.
