Kaffir lime leaf tea

My Asian background has been a big part of my love for tea.The kaffir lime leaf tea is not just another tea made from dried leaves, but made from fresh picked leaves from the Kaffir lime tree. The leaves are highly aromatic and suitable for Asian cuisines, including Thai, Indonesian, Cambodian and Lao Cuisines.With it's fresh lemony flavor that says, " wake up" and aroma which says, "relax". It's best in the morning or mid-afternoon.  I love this tea! If you get these leaves fresh-frozen or fresh, do try it. It will be a delightful taste.Thank goodness for oriental markets, and their goodies!


3 Kaffir lime leaves washed
1 1/4 cup of water
1/2 tsp brown sugar


Bring water to a boil. Lower heat, which will bring the water  at a slow boil before placing leaves in. Cut or tear each leaf in 3 pieces as to let out the natural oils. place leaves in water for a slow boiling time of two minutes. Take  your source of heat off, and pour your tea in a lovely tea cup, add sugar, stir. place a fresh leaf in your cup for added aroma. Enjoy nature's goodness.
