July is National Picnic Month, National Family Reunion Month and 4th of July Holiday !

Patricia is here today to share her picnic sweet tea recipe perfect for Picnics, Family Reunion's and of course the 4th of July!  Summer is here and  it is time to take your tea outdoors! This calls for picnics galore !

In the South, it is essential that a Summer picnic includes iced tea !

You know how much Southerners  love picnics, sweet tea  ...and mason jars .

Mason jars are a secret weapon for packing an easy picnic.

Here's a quick, fun way to pack and serve your tea 

At home, boil some water

Once the water is hot,  pour it into the mason jar, add  tea bags, pop on the lid.

The tea takes 5-7 minutes to brew.

Have one  large mason jar  filled with ice.

You can pour the ice and tea into  smaller mason jars for drinking

Enjoy !

Thank you Patricia for sharing these wonderful Southern Tea Time Tips with us today.
