After my best friend and I went to the spa today thanks to an anniversary gift from my husband, we had tea at my house. I wanted to give her something unique that she hadn’t tried before.

We made this in a glass pitcher that my son and his girlfriend gave me for Christmas. The leaves are so pretty to watch. After about two minutes I poured our two cups of tea and poured the rest into a fair cup so it wouldn’t oversteep.

Initially the tea tasted like creamed peas, mild and milky. As it cooled, flavors of mild rutabaga and a hint of spinach crept in.

If you add more leaf and more time, you can have a brisk tea with lots of spinach flavor, but I prefer the milder way.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
