A delicious cooling ๐Ÿต Tea

 

Itโ€™s is so hot in Florida the palm trees ๐ŸŒด are sweating!!! I so want to cool down in more ways than one.

How is life there for you in your part of the world?

Have you whipped up something yummy in your kitchen this weekend?

I so enjoy the cooling comfort of tea. I am a Northerner and until I moved to Florida I never drank iced tea. Only hot tea.

Once settled in Florida I noticed people in the south love their tea. When my business was open to the public pre-Covid-19 I loved making sun tea. My husband taught me this how-to. Sun Tea… if you havenโ€™t heard of it before is placing in a large see through container a gallon of fresh bottled water ๐Ÿ’ฆ and tea bags of your choice outside your door in the sun ๐ŸŒž and waiting for the magic to happen. Sugar is optional but adds sweetness. So easy… No hot tea kettle needed. But here’s another way we can make iced tea as you know..

If you love green tea here is a recipe I think you will like. My clients loved it! I hope when we open our doors fully again our clients will enjoy this cool green tea again.

Here is what you will need:

4 green tea bags

1/2 cup of honey

Of fresh mint leaves from my organic garden.

2 tablespoons of honey (I prefer from the local Fathers market or road side stand)

5 cups of boiling water

3 stalks of lemongrass to garnish or use a mint leaf stem. ๐Ÿƒ

Combine mint leaves, tea bags. Honey and boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes; remove the tea bags. Refrigerate until chilled. Pour into 6 ice filled glasses.

Garnish with stalk of lemongrass and or a mint leaf.

So cool and refreshing!

* If youโ€™ve love to embellish your ice cubes. I like to make ice cubes filled with edible flowers and or a mint leaf or two in each cube. Pretty to look at and tasty once it all melts down. Enjoy!

Yum!
