ICED TEA: Cornelia in Flower Magazine

Beautiful Cornelia Guest photographed by Michael Mundy for Flower Magazine

A favorite New York memory is meeting famous C. Z. Guest and her beautiful daughter, Cornelia...here she is in her Templeton garden- and check out her fabulous iced tea recipe! (via Flower Magazine)...DF

Templeton was famous for its iced tea. People constantly asked for the recipe, and the secret is fresh-squeezed orange juice.
  • 2 quarts boiling water
  • 8 herbal lemon tea bags
  • 1½ cups fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • fresh mint
  1. Pour 2 quarts boiling water over tea bags.
  2. Brew for 30 minutes and let cool. Remove tea bags.
  3. Add orange juice and serve over ice with fresh mint.
  4. Enjoy!
