I thought I made way too much tea, but I was wrong – every drop was consumed. It’s really unique. And it’s very refreshing, especially on a warm day. We had little cups of the tea to give out, and a number of people asked for seconds. I think it’s the tarragon that got them – it’s unexpected but so nice with the lime. Even the kids on the street were slurping it up.
It’s not much more difficult than making a big pot of tea – I used organic jasmine green teabags. Those steep with the tarragon, lime juice, honey and the spent limes for just 10 minutes, and it’s done.
Tracy has the recipe posted at Shutterbean. I’m in total agreement with her urge to add some gin to the tea for a grown-up version of the drink.
