I made Egg Fu Young and rice with vegetables tonight and thought this would be great to go with it. I also have my dog on homemade dog food right now and between making his meal and preparing mine and my husband’s, I completely forgot the tea. I guess I just didn’t hear the timer go off.
When I checked to see if I had removed the basket, it was still there full of leaves, much to my dismay. My daughter said it would probably be okay but I thought not, since it had probably been steeping for fifteen minutes or so.
Miracle of miracles, I tasted it to see if I needed to make another tea and it was perfectly fine. I waited a few minutes after sipping to see if that burn would start to glow in my tummy region from having oversteeped tea in an empty tummy. Nothing.
Merrily, merrily, I served it and no one could have guessed it had been so sorely neglected.
So this tea has racked up several points with me – 1. Great price for a smooth green that makes it perfectly affordable to drink every single day even if you don’t resteep. 2. ORGANIC! 3. Very forgiving.
If someone asked me for a recommendation to replace their grocery store green with something healthier and tasty that wasn’t too expensive, this would be it.
