It seems like everyone is making fancy iced tea today, and I have some fresh fruit in the fridge so I thought I’d experiment! Cut up a huge strawberry, macerated it in sugar and lime juice while the tea was brewing, poured it over ice and added a ton of sugar and a splash of pineapple juice. Fruity, minty, sweet, a little tart, and SO refreshing. It’s already brutally hot outside (thanks, NY weather), so I think I’ll be adding this to the regular iced-tea lineup: good thing limes are 10 for a buck!

Queens—our grocery prices are dirt cheap, 2 giant cartons of strawberries were $4!

Too bad MTA prices to get to and from Queens would negate the savings. bah. Enjoy the cheap fruits for me too!

Pass me some!

I think we need to work on teleporters so we can do some iced-tea swaps!

Moroccan mint is a favorite of mine too. :)

Definitely going to buy some Moroccan Mint when I go to Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill on Wednesday. Never had it, but to sounds great with all that fruit.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
