My cup of tea

I LOVE tea.  I think I'm a bit of a tea addict since I drink around 5-7 cups a day :)  I usually like it plain... just hot water + Lipton tea bag or loose tea leaves but when I want something special I make my own special concoction. 
All you need are the following: hot water, fresh Tarragon leaves, lemon or calamansi and 1 Lipton Yellow Label teabag.  It's very simple yet the flavors are amazing! 
First step: pour hot water over the fresh Tarragon leaves and let it steep for a few minutes. 
Make sure that you add your Lipton teabag when the water is still hot :)
Add a lemon slice or squeeze a calamasi for that extra zing!
 Mix sugar or any sweetener you prefer (I use cocosugar since it has low Glycemic Index - perfect for folks watching their sugar intake)
And that is it!  Simple, huh?  I guess good tea doesn't really have to be complicated :)  This concoction is perfect to drink after a long work day since Tarragon has a very soothing effect.
Time to enjoy my "Yellow Tarragon" tea!


  1. i'm a coffee person in the mornings then i switch to tea the rest of the day. thanks for the recipe.

  2. I love Tarragon and I love tea. I prefer tea over coffee. Best talaga stressed or may lagnat or just hanging out during quiet time. :) I'll try nga na meron real slice of lemon.

  3. Wow, that sounds like a nice cup of tea!

  4. Yes it is :) I really love tea :D

  5. @Artistmonk - calamansi works well too :)
