November 7, 2012
Every week my glass pitcher containing cold water and 3 Decaffeinated Green Tea bags is placed on the window sill.  Usually, the sun is shining when I use this self brewing method of preparing Green Tea. This is my "go to" method of brewing a pitcher. 

WoW!  Today, November 7, 2012 - was quite different!  Today snowflakes were falling!

This day in November sure looks like a December day!  Good thing that the leaves have been collected, the Zinnia seeds stored and the winter hats & gloves are ready to be worn!

My Green Tea?  Oh,  it brewed in about 3 and 1/2 hours as it always does.  :)

WOW I am so happy I returned to blogging just for this tip. I drink green tea all the time; tomorrow the sun will be shining I will try your great suggestion; thanks.

That looks great to me! It was 87 here today. I'll have to tell my son about your green tea trick. He drinks it all the time. :)

Rita- Happy you returned and stopped in! Enjoy the sun and the Green Tea. :)

Stacey- 87°F will only be in our dreams for quite a while. :) My younger son enjoys hot Green Tea. He "whips" a cup to enjoy using the traditional Matcha (green tea leaves that are in powdered form) + hot water. Green Tea tastes great!

124I shivered when I looked out your kitchen window, JG. Winter is definitely here. Love your method of preparing your tea. Have a good weekend.

Cathy- We closed our eyes and yesterday our New England weather became warmer- in the 60°'s. :)
