I couldn’t wait to get home from work today so I could have the most perfect cup of tea. I tried it just yesterday from who other than…..are you ready? I just love her…Angela Liddon “oh she glows” has the best recipe for a green tea that’s supposed to give your metabolism a boost! I made a few adjustments but basically it’s her tea. Oh so good. There were three things I was looking forward to when I got home today.
That perfect cup of tea
The peanut butter cookie dough balls (also from the cook book “oh she glows”)
Best of all reading chapter 4 of “The Giver” with littlest and only girl
it’s not all rainbows and sunshine you know. The real truth of how the tea was prepared is seen below. My messy countertop from this morning. Yep..real glamorous right? Just being real.
Then after I made this perfect cup of amazing tea…that’s what it should be called you know. I took a picture or two with my timer….below. And here I am now. Writing about my most perfect cup of tea as it’s luke warm but still mighty tasty. I know you are like “come on already tell me what’s in that tea!”
One tea bag of green tea with macha. Fresh and Easy brand. I’m still in serious mourning that the store I went to nearly 4 times a week for 5 years is gone. sigh. Literally I just sighed.
Oh back to the tea.
One tea bag of green tea with macha
I boiled my water in my pretty orange tea pot
The lid fell off and the steam burned my fingers (just a little)
This was after I visited the restroom to find the toilet paper had been used up
Luckily I saw before I sat down
I went to the garage to get a new roll
I then dropped the new roll in the toilet
I over re-acted and Abbie thought I found Pablo dead…nope, just dropped the TP in the toilet
so I got another roll
okay back to the tea
One bag of green tea with macha
boil water, put a few ice cubs in so it’s not too bitter when you seep your tea
seep tea 3 minutes
Put the juice of half a grapefruit in
then the juice of half a lemon
a dash of cayenne pepper
I put it back in the microwave for 45 seconds to warm it back up
then a little tiny spoonful of organic grapefruit honey we got on the side of the road on our way back from Julian.
