This is from a blog by Random Acts of Pastel and Bicyclette.  It was so well done that we thought to share it here as well!

Thank-you RAOP for your amazing creative-collaboration with Bicyclette- such an amazing job on this article.

I swear tea has magical powers. When you’re feeling chilled it warms you up, when you’re sad or tired it gives you a boost, and it always seems to bring people together one way or another. The first time Paige and I met in person it was over tea and scones at The Kitten and The Bear, and from that moment on we’ve been dreaming up RAOP x Bicyclette magic, so it was only fitting that we’d eventually make one of our projects something to do with tea.

We’re both big fans of Sloane Tea, a local brand with incredible blends and super pretty packaging, so we rounded up a handful of our favourites and started experimenting together at Studio B. By the end of the afternoon we’d come up with 6 delicious, fancy iced tea recipes to keep you cool this summer. Some have caffeine, others are caffeine-free and kid-safe, and all promise to bring magic, fun, and togetherness to your summer.
