This week we've been reading Another Celebrated Dancing Bear which is part of the Five in a Row curriculum. The story is set in Russia, so we've been learning lots of interesting facts about the country. According to our readings, many Russians like to drink tea--a lot of tea. We don't drink tea in our family (except for good ol' Southern sweet tea), so we decided to try this recipe from the book Russia A to Z.

Gerrick enjoyed making it, but one sip was all he needed to proclaim, "It's disgusting!" I'm sure tea is just an acquired taste. I thought it was pretty good compared to the few other teas I've tried in the past. Do you like tea? Maybe you should give this recipe a try. :)
