  1. Simple teas are just the best. Your photo is just beautiful.

  2. What a beautiful table! Oh I wonder if John would enjoy this version. Our lunchtime meal often includes a reverse recipe heavy on the yogurt and light on the fruit.

  3. Hi, I loved seeing this; I've never heard of Barley tea and wouldn't be able to enjoy it because I can't have gluten. The fruit looks so good-yummy, I may have to make some for lunch. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi La Tea Dah...Love Fuji apples, blueberries and bananas but never heard of barley tea. Nice photos! Susan
