I really wasn’t going to log this, but I’m still thinking about it a day later, so I might as well.
Yesterday we hosted our first Thanksgiving at our house. I wanted to be sure to have sweet tea for my Southern family, but I also am trying to avoid caffeine since I’m pregnant. I had several of these pouches from before the pregnancy, sitting on a shelf near the stove, and decided I’d make them decaf.
To do so I boiled two pots of water, dropped the tea bag in one for 60 seconds, mashed water out of the bag, and transferred it to the new pot for a regular steeping time (about 3.5 minutes for me).
And it was great! I had two cups of sweet tea, everyone had their traditional Thanksgiving beverage, and I am imagining drinking lots and lots of sweet tea again. Now I just need to feel comfortable trying this with a really good quality loose leaf hot tea.
Until then, I’m going to keep using up my decaf/herbal/rooibos stash. :)
