After my best friend and I went to the spa today thanks to an anniversary gift from my husband, we had tea at my house. I wanted to give her something unique that she hadn’t tried before.
We made this in a glass pitcher that my son and his girlfriend gave me for Christmas. The leaves are so pretty to watch. After about two minutes I poured our two cups of tea and poured the rest into a fair cup so it wouldn’t oversteep.
Initially the tea tasted like creamed peas, mild and milky. As it cooled, flavors of mild rutabaga and a hint of spinach crept in.
If you add more leaf and more time, you can have a brisk tea with lots of spinach flavor, but I prefer the milder way.
