Lemon Tarragon Green Tea
Add depth to your usual cup of green tea by infusing it with fresh herb and fruit. Loose leaf green tea, sprigs of fresh tarragon and lemon slices make up this lovely hot drink. Brewing is a must. Sweetener (sugar or honey) is optional.I’ve gotten the hang of the tea ritual — warming the teapot and cups, letting the tea leaves steep in hot water then throwing out the water, then pouring in hot water again… I’ve come to like it. A comforting ritual. And it is true that there is magic in throwing away the first pot of water as it gets rid of much of the bitterness of the tea leaves.
