You just reminded me of a long-time obsession. I used to drink so much iced-tea and then came Emma and I had to stop while prego. I will get right back at it asap.

The first thing you said was Trader Joes. Bummer! They're not in Oklahoma, but I will be in Santa Fe, NM in three weeks, so I'll add it to the list!

This iced tea sounds amazing!! I LOVE Mango Iced Tea from Traders! I have some in my cupboard! I'll have to try this. My favorite summer drink would probably be any type of ice tea! So refreshing!
