NO. This is not about those kinds served in Long Island and don’t say “Arizona” and “Iced Tea” in one sentence in my presence. Unless you are actually enduring heat in Arizona, drinking iced tea, and not the kind from a gas station grocery store in a green can with an ersatz dragon on it.
I am actually blog-cheating and reposting this recipe that I originally posted on FullWell. I just have to. The humidity today has turned my AC-less home office into a sauna. This is no exaggeration. Today was the day I weighed the cost-benefit of “less productive” vs. “save energy”. I sweat just moving my fingers to type. I sweated out the requisite 8 glasses of water I drank today. And consumed about 5 more glasses as I had dinner at Salt with two gorgeous women, Leah Helou and Kate Stoltzfus, that left me believing that blondes have a secret humidity force field and never look sweaty.
(I had, BTW, an amazing drink called a Shrub. Kind of like a milder kombucha, as Kate observed. Begs to be replicated. Stay tuned.)
But for now, I post about and long for iced tea. Cold Flavorful Herbal Iced Teas. No, no. KICK-ASS Cold Flavorful Herbal Iced Teas. As in Spiced Kukicha Twig Tea and Green Tea, Apple Cider, Kuzu, Ginger Tea. Is what I’m sayin’.
