This weekend, I’m going to buy a new pitcher for iced tea because it’s summertime in the U.S. and it’s time for iced tea and I’m growing a mint plant in my kitchen garden that’s perfect for flavoring tea and also I broke my favorite glass pitcher last year. What am I looking for in a new pitcher? Inexpensive, transparent (I like to see the contents of my pitcher—it adds to the whole aesthetic experience.), easy to clean, able to hold two quarts or more of tea (so a day’s worth), and durable (I’m thinking ahead to my life with a small human and glass breakables are probably not the best choice right now.).
But enough about my thrilling weekend plans…
You’re here looking for some links. Well, I’ve got some links for you. Oh boi, have I got links. Hope you like these links! Have a great weekend, ya’ll!
