You know I love coffe. Believe me, I LOVE coffee.
But. There are occasions where nothing will do but a cup of tea. Piping, steaming, fragrant tea.
I've been consistently cold today. You know. Hands and feet perpetually cold. Odd for the middle of August, I know.
I think this calls for a cup of hot tea. Don't you?
Now, I considered other ways to get warm. I think of my hubby as my own personal heater. I swear his body temp hovers at around 150 degrees or so. Unfortunately, snuggling with him means he is sweating in about 10 seconds. Plus this is a family blog, so I couldn't get very far posting about that....
How do you take your tea?
Here in the South, tea is usually brewed, sweetened (heavily) and served over ice. It's a staple at meals and very refreshing on a hot summer's day. Interestingly enough, although I've grown up on sweet tea, I don't make it often at home. I drink it only occasionally.
Others drink hot tea, heating water and adding tea bags or loose tea and letting it steep. Some add honey, lemon, and/or milk as well.
That is my preference today. A piping hot cup of Earl Grey. Lightly sweetened, with milk.
What will you have?
Just let me know....I'm pouring.
