Shweet tea

My son is a southerner..and I don’t mean because Krishnan is a SouthIndian, I mean American Southerner.. He loves his pickles and his tea sweet. (and Yes I am stereotyping.. get over it !)..

When we go out to a restaurant, he wants sweet tea.. Not half and half (what I get) but SHWEET TEA..

this is for my bubbu.. 🙂

To make about 4 glasses

2 Tbsp loose leaf black/ orange tea
2 Tbsp loose leaf green tea
1/2 Orange sliced
2 Tbsp fresh chopped mint leaves
1/2″ ginger root peeled and mashed
Honey to sweeten
(Use Sugar if you don’t like honey)

In about 4-5 cups of water, boil the tea leaves, and the ginger for about 5 minutes.
Strain into a serving Carafe. Cool till about warm to touch. Add the orange and the mint and let it soak for about an hr.

Serve over crushed ice. and Enjoy in this summer heat !

You can add more tea leaves if you like your tea strong or reduce it, if you like it weak.
