Garden Marigold teaNovember 24, 2013
I know ... I said before that I don't share recipes and all of a sudden I keep sharing them; two in a row. But I want to show you something about my tea drinking habit. I have said a couple of times that I am more a coffee person - especially in the mornings - but that I like tea in the afternoon, embraced even tighter when there's a storm going on outside. Tea, more often than not accompanied by a good book in my case - whether that be a story book or a cookery book -, comforted many people during the war. Tea became on the ration list in 1940 and alot of people consulted their Victory Gardens in search for ingrediënts that could be used in tea making. I like the idea of making your own tea with your own home grown garden herbs. But yeah ... we don't have a garden in the centre of Zutphen.
- 1 tbs. Garden Marigold herb
- 1 ordinary teabag (or egg)
- 4 cups bubbling boiling water
- raw or brown sugar (or honey)
- light cream or lemon
