The Sunday Steep!

magazines and tea

 

Is there anything better than settling in with a good book or a stack of magazines, pouring a nice hot mug or pot of tea, and spending some uninterrupted time reading? I don't get the chance to read as much as I'd like, but I generally manage to have a few "going" at once and reading time is one of my most cherished parts of the week!

This recipe uses our delicious, organic Ceylon Tea as a caffeinated base and then I've added some delectably flavored herbs to the mix for a cup of tea that tastes as good as it smells. For fun, I like to add a bit of Rosemary with the hope it will help me remember what I've read!

 

Rosemary

Reader's Tea

1 teaspoon organic Ceylon Tea

1 teaspoon organic Red Roses, dried

1 teaspoon organic Rosemary leaves

1 teaspoon organic Peppermint leaves

Combine all the herbs and tea in an infuser, nest, strainer, or bag. This recipe makes enough for a cup of tea, but change the measurements to Tablespoons for a whole pot! Pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water over and let steep for 3-4 minutes. Black teas tend to get a bit bitter if allowed to steep too long, so you'll want to remove the herbs after the steeping is done. Feel free to add honey, lemon, or a little milk if you'd like and enjoy!
