Tea Time

My tea drawer selection ranges from the ordinary to extraordinary. Full disclosure: we reach for the ordinary way more than the extraordinary.

Peppermint Lemongrass Tea

In the morning, peppermint tea is great when I want something hot to drink post caffeine buzz (I have a strict two espresso limit in the morning, anything more makes me jittery and a little wacky). Recently, I have been cutting pieces of lemongrass from the garden and stick it in with the mint. This combo is zippy and minty, a great alternative to more caffeine. After the morning jolt of caffeine that gets me going, this tea brings a nice little zen vibe.
