First iced tea of the season necessitated by the first push mow of the season. Got half our big backyard done and I’m limp—vegetation so thick the blade felt like it was caught in wet spaghetti. Welcome to Missouri. There was still snow on the ground last week.
At any rate, this is quick-no steep time whatsoever; in with the cold water and boom! there you go. Root beery goodness. We can find this in local grocery stores; I wonder if it gets scarcer the farther east and west you go.
Best part — shot of two tablespoons in a cup, no waiting, no steep time! I was seriously craving this; another tea treat I associate with early spring. Unsweet root beer for those of you who are unfamiliar with the base ingredient.
Since I have a whole bottle (minus last night’s splash) I wonder what this would mix well with. Hmmm…
Yummy memories of childhood in this cup. When I was a lil’ kid in the hills n’ hollows of western Pennsylvania we’d dig sassafras roots in the spring after the new leaves appeared. Wash em’ up and cut into shorts. Boil awhile and hot cups of yummy tea. Didn’t know about the safrole back then, but didn’t drink enough to really matter. Pappy’s is good stuff, hot with truvia. Enjoying some right now.
There are those who would say tea concentrate is sacrilege, but you just can’t beat this one for good ol’fashioned Ozark mountain sentimentality. Flat unsweet root beer, that’s all there is to it, and since I think root beer is often way too sweet, this is great. A tablespoon or so in a hot cuppa; or about double strength iced.
