Secrets of Success

Mock Constant Comment Tea




Have you just eaten a navel orange and have a nice, thick juicy peel begging to be used? Brew up a pot of green tea (think of the antioxidants in it!), and throw in the orange peels! Let it steep until it gets a bit mushy, then throw it out. Refrigerate the tea, and voila! icy refreshment for the hot summer ahead. No sugar needed.
