I’ve told you how much I love the Braun Tassimo Hot Beverage System. It helped to warm my winter afternoons and evenings up; with hot tea, hot chocolate, and coffee (lots and lots of coffee) I barely even knew it was winter. It’s also doing wonders for me even now that Winter has packed his bags and moved on.
I don’t really make much hot chocolate anymore. Frankly, after an afternoon in the yard, walking, or shopping, a hot drink right off the bat doesn’t appeal that much to me. What I’ve fallen in love with, though, is the amazing glass of sweet tea my Tassimo serves up…in mere minutes. When I’m thirsty, that “in mere minutes” thing’s a very big deal. I pop a tea pod into my Tassimo, then push the button. While my mug of hot tea’s brewing, I fill my glass with ice and grab a lemon wedge. Then, I take my heavenly-smelling mug of tea, stir in a spoonful of sugar (or Sweet ‘n Low when I’m being a good girl), pour it over my ice, squeeze my lemon into the mix, and off I go! A lot faster and fresher than the traditional method.
It makes a glass of Iced Tea like you’d be served in a Coffee House – yes, even Starbucks.
I usually use the Twining’s Earl Grey tea pods, but I also like the Green Tea ones a lot. Use the link above to take a look at all of the different varieties they have. And, my Northern friends…give Sweet Tea a chance – it’ll make you weak in the knees, there’s nothing quite like it. Sweet Tea and Summer were made for one another!
