I’m a BIG tea drinker. I’m a southern girl so I love sweet iced tea with lemon (it has to have the lemon y’all)! Many years ago I worked with a man who loved iced tea and drank it often. He used to say that he liked a little tea with his lemon and I know exactly what he meant!
I love hot tea too and I drink it year round. I’m sitting here now (in an air-conditioned house of course) and it’s 95 degrees outside with a heat index of over 105 and I’m drinking a cup of hot tea. My husband is always asking me how I can stand to drink hot tea in this stifling weather but I HAVE to have a cup every morning and then I’ll usually make another cup a few hours later. It perks me up and it’s soothing to my throat. My husband drinks iced tea A LOT but only drinks hot tea in the fall and winter. He’s not a coffee drinker (I like both).
This is our favorite:
I add extra lemon or lime.
And then I stir in some of this.
I also love spearmint and peppermint teas.
Around the holidays, I usually make spiced tea or Russian tea. Our oldest son is a fan of these (he likes the lemon honey tea too). Youngest son doesn’t drink coffee or tea— Not even iced tea!
What about you? Are you a tea drinker? What’s your favorite?
