Good morning lovely friends of mine! I hope everyone had a marvelous Monday!
I am so happy I am feeling better. Over the weekend I was feeling a bit under the weather… feverish, runny nose, coughing, sleepless nights… not fun. But, yesterday morning I woke up and felt back to my normal self!
I’m thrilled with the feedback I’m getting on my October Breakfast Challenge recap posts. Yesterday’s post featured a lot of breakfasts containing pumpkin and I have more pumpkin recipes to come! In fact, just this morning I created a new recipe involving pumpkin and a new to me fruit, persimmon But, you’ll have to wait a bit until you get the recipe for that! However, you can check out my Instagram feed if you want a sneak peak!
Today’s post isn’t about breakfast, though. It’s about tea! As all Tuesdays around here are
This tea is called honey bee and it tastes exactly like honey.
Although this tea tastes very soothing, relaxing, and comforting, it is high in caffeine as it is a mate. So, it’s a great tea to have when you need a boost of energy. I often have this tea in the morning (even though I wish there was a decaffeinated version of it for a night time tea! it’s that good!)
Along with green mate, the other ingredients of this tea include: red and green rooibos, honeybush, lemon bits, lemon myrtle, calendula petals, blue cornflowers, and artificial and natural flavourings
I enjoy this tea most when plain, but have added lemon stevia drops to it when I’ve wanted something on the sweeter side and it tasted incredible! It also makes a fantastic latte with almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk! All very delicious!
When I brew this tea, I never allow it to steep for more than 5 minutes. The recommendations are to steep it from anywhere between 4 – 7 minutes, but I think 5 minutes is perfect
I have yet to make any recipes with this tea, but plan to make honey bee flavoured oats as well as a smoothie, too! Once I do I will definitely share the recipes if they come out successful. Cross your fingers for me
What recipe would you create using this tea? Have you tried Honey Bee tea before? Do you think you’d like this tea?
See you tomorrow!
