Yeah…tea again…anyone else sensing a pattern? It must be the winter ‘fog’. I’m craving tea like nobodies business.
Tonight’s Tea : Green Ginger Anise with a Twist
When it comes to tea…citrus is to the taste as the strokes are to a Picasso…you just can’t get it wrong.
The ingredients here are simple….
- green ginger tea or green tea with a pinch of ginger
- star anise
I prefer to fill my cup with the fruit first, throw in the tea and slowly pour my hot water over the tea bag. Of course…I also think food is art and playing with my food is my favorite past time…. so if you’d prefer to steep the tea first (as many a tea maker has suggested) , then add the fruit, that will work too.
Tea has an endless supply of blank canvas’. I could keep myself busy for days, just playing with the flavors. Adding turmeric and blueberries is another favorite of mine. Maybe a fresh lavender stem….the inspiration is infinite…everything from the weather to the color of the family feline (in my case…she’s a brown tabby…and she’s a PILL!….maybe something bitter?!)
And be sure to pour an extra cup….bright shiny colors seem to attract children….hmmmm….strange.
In any case, as always, feel free to tweak! The beauty and the flavor are in the belly of the beholder…..
