As we approach late summer, it’s cooling down a bit. That means that here in Houston, our projected high is “only” about 92, still too hot for hot tea. I drink a lot of fruity iced herbal tea during the approximately seven months of summer we get. Sometimes, though, chai is nice for a change.
This Yogi Tea from A Life (Time) of Cooking was absolutely perfect over ice with some vanilla soy milk and a squirt of agave nectar. I didn’t know where to find licorice root, though, so I substituted star anise. This goes out to Tried and Tasted, hosted this month by Yasmeen of Health Nut.
