A blog by one of the Northeast's best tea shops! A blog for those who wish to know how tea should taste,
and for those having a similar passion for tea -- one of this life's most affordable luxuries.
Also other musings as they may occur while enjoying a cuppa ...
9 cups water (I always use spring water) 2 sprigs of rosemary 6 fresh apricots, halved, pitted and sliced 2 1/2 cups apricot nectar
1. Heat four cups of water to 175°F. (Steam should be slow and lazy. Do not allow water to boil. Steep tea and rosemary in the water (alone, in a tea bag, or in a tea ball or other infuser) for 3 minutes 30 seconds. Remove tea from water (strain if necessary)
2. Add tea to the remaining water.
3. Stir in the apricot nectar.
4. Serve over ice. Garnish with the sliced apricots. (If desired top off with a splash of sparkling water for a surprising fresh spritzer)
