Licorice and peppermint tea.
Trust me, this one's a winner! Here's the rub: Licorice root is naturally sweet -- sweeter, in fact, than sugar. Together, the two flavors totally complement each other: at first you get the invigorating taste and scent of peppermint, and then the sweetness from the licorice. All this from plunking two tea bags in a mug of boiling water.
It's genius. I know. You're welcome :)
In case you were wondering, I swear by Bigelow peppermint tea. It's the most pungent mint tea I've tried, and it's great either by itself or with...
- Stash licorice tea (pictured above)
- Yogi Egyptian licorice tea (often sold in the organic/natural foods section of the supermarket)
It's back to the blustery winds of Boston tomorrow, where Major Homework will commence. Something tells me I'm gonna need to break out the puffy coat. Good thing I have something warm to drink!
