1 Tea bag (your flavor of choice)
16 oz.+ cold tap water
Sweetner (2-3 packets of Splenda, optional)
1 Travel mug
Get your favorite travel mug and fill it with cold tap water (or drinking water). Add 1 tea bag of your choice. I tend to use fruit flavors like blueberry or strawberry. Add sweetener if needed and add the lid to the container. Allow to steep approximately 15-30 minutes before drinking. (Just leave the tea bag in. There's less fuss, and with the blueberry and strawberry, it doesn't seem to affect the flavor and the tea bag seems to stay out of the way while drinking.) I make this before I leave for work and by the time I get to the office, it's ready to drink. (Option: Try 2 tea bags with different flavors like white tea and peach and see what you think.)
P.S. About the spotted tea pot...
I created this little pot of tea for The Cupcake Tree a book of silly poems I wrote for my daughter. You can see some of my other art at the Fabled Garden Press blog. I'm in the process laying out the book to publish to the Kindle and the Nook.
