Nanny's Tea Recipe

Tea For Two

“Tea is a drink that just tastes better when you’re enjoying it with a friend or two.”

~ ~ ~ 

I just returned home to Austin from visiting my Cousin Julie in San Antonio and she always has a fresh pitcher of brewed tea on her kitchen counter. I had a glass of Julie’s tea and told her there was something special about it. She said the tea was made how my Keep Calm And Shazamgrandmother “Nanny” liked it, so you know in a flash it became my newest-oldest favorite drink! Shazam!

Julie said Nanny would add a flavorful tea called “Constant Comment” to regular tea as she brewed it. She sent me home with a few bags of the stuff and now I’m brewing my tea the way my Grandmother liked it best. Since I haven’t enjoyed any of my Grandmother’s foods since she was living in the 1990s, this has become a way for me to celebrate my Mom’s Mom’s favorite beverages. Pretty. Darn. Cool.

Cheers to you, Nanny … and Julie!

Foodie Tips ~

  While I grew up drinking Lipton instant tea I actually think Luzianne makes a better brew.

  For brewing, I use a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker.

i. ingredients

1 tea bag | constant comment brand tea
2-3 tea bags | regular tea
per instructions | water and ice
optional | lemon wedge

ii. what to do

1. Brew the tea as you normally would … but include one bag of the magical constant comment tea.

2. Pour brewed tea over ice.

3. If you want to make it extra special, add a squeeze of fresh lemon and a friend or two – share the moments of the day over a great cup of tea.

Delicious!
