On Sunday, it was iced tea. The unfiltered, verbatim quote that I remember from my dream is, "If I have one more disgusting glass of iced tea up here! These [northern] folks need to learn that it's okay to add a few tablespoons of sugar or honey or citrus to your tea while it's brewing." Obviously, I was scarred by that unmemorable glass of orange blossom iced tea that I had at a local restaurant the day before. Lol...
"Aha! Why don't I try them together!" I thought. Good idea. So, yesterday, I made a proper glass of iced tea (see recipe below) and had steamed crabs for the first time. I was in heavennnnnn! The crabs were only $1 per crab (quite a bargain) and I even got a lesson on picking crabs at the crab shop. The Old Bay coating was delicious and crab meat was divine. Yeah, this is gonna be a problem...
A Proper Glass of Iced Tea
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 lime wedges
- 1 sprig mint
- 1 bag of your favorite tea
Add water to a small pot and bring to a boil. Stir in honey, squeezed lime wedges and mint. Add tea bag. Cover with a lid and steep according to package directions. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then add to a tall glass filled with ice cubes.
