Rains and warm beverages

Tagged as: food


Last weekend we were prepping for the move to the new house. Last weekend it was super rainy here. So while we were tripping over boxes, trying to decide what stuff to take v/s what to purge, naturally I decided to take a break. So I used the rains and the cold weather as an excuse to try out this recipe that I had been thinking about. I think I found it via Pinterest. But since it was raining here, I I just knew I wanted something warm & sweet to drink. So I adapted the recipe a tiny bit.

I knew I had to do 2 things, slice the ginger super thin & hold off adding the lemon juice till the water is off the heat.

What I hadn’t planned though, was the addition of green tea. I had an unopened box of Twinings green tea in the pantry. I’m a black tea person, hence the unopened box. Luckily for me, it turned out perfect.

My work table (ignore the interim mess)
