|Too many choices.|
In the summer, when I'm cranky and hot, I knit smaller and lacy things and drink iced tea. My current favorite is mango ceylon. I also love coconut oolong and my herbal mint blend. I make a big carafe of double-strength tea in the morning, add honey (or not), and pour it over ice throughout the day. My preferred summer teacup is actually a mason jar:

|August Summer Yarn + Tea kit includes a fun project bag!|
The first exciting change: you don't have to subscribe to 3 months. Each month is its own Yarn + Tea Kit. The second big change: a new handmade project bag. I used to include a bunch of paper goods or even candy, but a project bag is more practical and can hold the whole kit together. I can't compete with sample boxes and I'm all about simplicity and functionality, so this really reflects what Bumblebirch is all about.
The things that haven't changed: the yarn is first-run or exclusive to the club. This month, the yarn is a brand new colorway inspired by summer which will be available to everyone in the Fall. The tea is still very high quality and comes in a 4oz tin, which should last about a month. The most important thing that hasn't changed is it's all a surprise! I might drop a hint here and there, but the flavor of the tea, the yarn colorway, and the project bag all coordinate and are a surprise each month. The new Yarn + Tea Kit makes a great gift, and it's all bundled up in a bright project bag instead of wrapping paper.
So it's time to pour a cup of tea—over ice, of course!—and get started on a new project. Tell me your favorite summer tea in the comments.
