For some reason Ronnie and I go through phases with what we love to eat and drink. Then, gradually, they just fade away to different things and we forget all about them. Hopefully, this part of our blog will remind us and you of something we have not had in a while and keep us out of a food and beverage rut!
This morning I woke up with stuffy sinus syndrome so I brewed a nice, warm, aroma rich cup of peppermint and lemon tea. The warmth and aroma cleared my sinuses right up. But herbal tea isn't only delicious when it's steaming hot.
So, this afternoon I threw...
1 small bag peppermint tea
1 small bag lemon tea
1 small bag green tea
into the carafe of our automatic coffee maker. I ran 4 cups of purified water through and let steep for 30 minutes. I then diluted it with about 3 cups water and garnished with fresh sliced lemon and poured over ice. It was, as they say, "Slap your Mama" good! Sometimes we use agave nectar for sweetener, but it is flavorful enough that it can be enjoyed just like it is. We get crazy and experiment with different combinations of herbal teas and are always pleasantly surprised.
It's a nice refreshing alternative for lunch, a bridal shower or just getting together with a couple of girlfriends over girl talk.
