I’m getting used to drinking more tea these days, ever since I’ve gone vegan. When I go out for coffee with friends, sometimes it’s all I can have, as I prefer it to the bitter tasting black coffee (apologies to black coffee drinking people).
I’ve discovered this lovely tea called ‘tea trunk’ which is delightful. I won some in a lucky draw, and tbh I haven’t been able to try all of them, but the white tea and lemon green tea are to die for.
Many moons back on my blog challenge, I made some leeli tea, which involves mint and lemon grass. I will blog about that when I have another tea moment some day, but as for now, I’m getting used to the tea vibes. Here is a picture of my tea trunk
As an update to this post, I revisited an old blog post and decided to make some leeli tea. A relative of mine gave me this recipe and I used it again today. This tea is lovely both with milk and sugar and without, the smell wafts through my house. And I’m a happy blogger 🙂
What you need:
Three cups of water
A tablespoon or more of sugar
5-7 lemongrass stalks, roughly chopped
Three mint leaf sprigs
A teaspoon of tea leaves (I think you can omit this if you want)
What to do:
1. Add three cups of water to a pan, and bunk the lemongrass, mint and sugar in.
2. When the water boils, add the tea leaves, and let it reach a brown colour, basically bring it to the colour you like your tea.
3. Strain straight into tea cups or put in a pot and pour into tea cups.
4. Smell the lovely smell and just waft in it and dance in it and chill.
