It’s Tid Bit Tuesday and today’s share is probably already known by some of you. I drink tea. I think it’s in my blood.
Being from England, we start drinking tea when we are quite young ( usually with lots of milk). I now drink decaffeinated tea ( Doctors orders). But it is tea just without the jitters I drink Lipton tea, it’s a simple orange pekoe and black tea blend that taste divine. I used to drink Earl Grey tea and a variety of proper English teas. But I can only indulge in those if they have no caffeine.
Every morning I put the kettle on the stove and wait for the whistle. Making the perfect cup of tea is easy using a tea bag. Just place the tea bag in the cup and pour the hot water over the tea bag then and then let it sit for about 2 minutes ( longer if you like it stronger Making tea with a tea ball ( tea infuser) is just as easy. General rule is one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per 8 ounce cup. Place the tea in the tea ball ( infuser) and pour your hot water over the tea ball ( keep it submerged) let it steep for about 3 minutes ( longer if you like it stronger. I drink my tea in one of my pretty cups or mugs and then day officially begins.
I also enjoy iced tea ( Lipton decaffeinated green tea) but usually only in the summer months.
note- you will never find me drinking tea with the tea bag hanging out, no, no no…giggle.
Are you a tea drinker?
