Editor’s Note: While we were visiting Flour + Tea to photograph and test these summer refreshers (thumbs up! delicious in a green tea and lemon way), we couldn’t help being drawn to the many other temptations. We walked out with a small bag full of their baked goods and a long, lovely box of macarons. We splurged for the even dozen (they didn’t even make it until dinnertime).
