1/1 Photo of Constant Comment Extra Special Tea
Mom's favorite tea flavor was Bigelow's 'Constant Comment'. Mom told me numerous occasions that neither she, or Grandma or Great Grandmother flavored their tea with lemon slices rather orange slices. (Lemon slices with tea was only when one was ill!) With inspiration from this tea recipe Moroccan Tea, I added my own little twist to the final product and used an extra special teapot to serve the tea (photo coming soon!). I'm sure it would taste equally good iced. Rest in Peace, Dear Mom. This is for you.
