"A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of you liking what you made are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one will ever know." (Jenni Ferrari-Adler)

Iced Pomegranate White Tea

Oh, Summer has finally arrived to the southland!YEY!

Hot+ dehidrated = Ice Tea

But wait just before you get out to grab a 16oz bottle os snapple or lipton or arizona iced tea, have you ever thought about making your own?

Here is why should:
1. Its Cheap (the average 16oz iced tea will cost you anywhere between 1.25 to 2.5, home made will cost you cents)
2. Its Healthy ( you control how much sugar and caffeine goes on your tea)
3. Its Green (not plastic or glass bottles will be put to waste)

Do I need to say more?

So here is today's project:  HOME BREWED POMEGRANATE WHITE TEA 

1 -2 tea bags of Pomegranate White Tea 
3 Cups of boiling water
2 Cups of cold water
1 Cup of ice
1/2 sliced Lemon
1 Cinnamon stick
Sugar/ sweetner/ agave/ mapple syrup/ honey (to taste)

In a pitcher add the boiling water and tea bags. Allow tea to brew for about 10-12 min. Sweeten to taste. Add cold water, cinnamon stick and sliced lemon and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour. Before serving add the ice.

VOILA, easy like sunday morning!
