This one is strange. Very strange. It’s an almost savory tea, and yet I can consider it iced with some honey or sugar syrup.
The basil is prominent. The tea is smooth, and even though I accidentally let it sit out and cool for an hour and a half, it still tastes nice. The lemon is more lemon oil or lemon zest, but I think with sugar added it’d turn more lemonade.
I’m not sure how frequently I’d ever drink this (I’ll have to try it iced… maybe I’d go through it faster!) but it’s definitely something to consider trying.
(I let the water cool while I washed my tea dishes. IDK what the temp was. I think it took about 10 minutes?)
Edit: It’s really good with my batch-cook of the day: ham, pea, roasted squash and goat cheese pasta… :) If I had added some basil to the food, it would have been perfect!
