Top 3 Favorite Teas - Spring Edition
Spring is the most beautiful season of the year.Flowers are blooming, grass is growing
and new life is forming. Spring is also a great time to try new teas.There's black tea, green tea, herbal
tea just to name a few. The bitter beverage has been around for thousands of years and has grown
very popular in recent years. It's used in place of coffee, goes well with snacks and and desserts.
Some are also used for medicinal purposes.... but we won't be talking about that today.
Today, I want to share with you three of my favorite tea flavors. We'll talk about what they
taste like, how long to steep them, and the best way( in my opinion) to drink them. This is my own
Jasmine Green Tea: This has to be my absolute favorite tea.Green tea has so many
antioxidants and is so good for you. Now, Jasmine just brings your green tea up to a whole new
level...or two. It's amazing hot, but you can drink it with ice too. I don't add any sweetener to my
teas, but it would be great with honey. Steep for about 2 to 3 minutes. Enjoy with rice dishes slightly
Peppermint: Peppermint tea is an herbal tea. It has no tea leaves in the mix. Just good old
fashioned peppermint leaves.The fresh taste of peppermint is just ans refreshing as mint gum. It's the
best tea to enjoy on Spring afternoons and tastes best over ice. Steep for about 2 minutes. Don't
steep this one for too long or it will taste bitter; I found this out the hard way.
Peach: Peach tea is also and herbal tea. It's usually made with peach blossoms and is mixed
with other herbs and flowers. It's best enjoyed cold over ice with yummy snacks. Steep it the same as
the others. Honey is a great choice to sweeten this tea.
Well, there you have it. My Top 3 favorite teas for Spring. Teas are nice and refreshing,
perfect for warm Spring days. I like to drink mine outside in the sunlight. How do you like to enjoy
