Sweet Tea and Secrets


(Available in print, digital, and audio)

Welcome to Adams Grove...where the tea is sweet, but trouble is brewing.

You’ll want to make this tea by the gallon, and please keep this recipe our little secret.

Glass jugs make all the difference, and I swear a good one with a spigot is the best way to go. Something about the way the tea splashes in the glass over the ice is just a little miracle all to itself.

The secret is all in the steep, ya see. Like anything that’s worthwhile, you have to give it the time to mature, to marry up and merge to its full potential. Love is like that ya know. Anyway, all tea has a temperature point of perfection, and you really have to get that water boiling if you want to get it right. Here we go!
