How was your Thanksgiving holiday?
Mine was perfect; it was a relaxing, indulgent set of four days spent just me and my mom. On Thanksgiving day we joined my aunt, uncle, and younger cousin for a very adult, low-key Thanksgiving dinner.
Although I was originally disappointed that I wouldn’t get to see my entire extended family for the large family get-together we usually do at Thanksgiving, the holiday we enjoyed last week was just perfect.
I loved my relaxing vacation with my mom!
But if your holiday dinner was spent with a larger group of people, you are probably enjoying (or wishing for) some peace and quiet this week. And let me tell you, I have just the thing.
A HOMEMADE REFRESHING, FRUITY, HERBY, HEALTHY, DELICIOUS, DELIGHTFUL GREEN TEA BLEND.
Yes, it was necessary to put that all in caps.
Guys. Today we’re making a homemade tea blend. Just like the ones you buy at the store. But this one is homemade, more flavorful, more delicious, and more cheaper. This raspberry mint green tea blend is awesome.
It’s warm and fruity and so cool and refreshing. It’s like a warm raspberry mojito giving your stomach a hug. A healthy, antioxidant-rich hug. If there were such a thing.
This tea is delicious and soothing enjoyed hot, and cool and invigorating when enjoyed over ice. I think this could also make a great addition to some fun, tea-based cocktails!
And this homemade tea blend is super easy to make.
It’s perfect to give as gifts this holiday season! I think you’ll find your boss, coworkers, mail person, kids’ teachers, cousin, parents, and neighbors will all be impressed and delighted by this minty berry tea blend.
Happy holidays indeed!
