Tea for Breakfast? Why, Thank you.

According to substituting a cup of coffee with tea will cut your caffeine intake in half. Tea has a lot of beneficial and healing properties. Tea bags are filled with lots of antioxidants. Teas aide with allergies, help with sickness, cholesterol, great for cleansing, cancer, weight loss and the list goes on and on.

Here's a recipe I picked up from my husband's mom.


  • 2 tea bags of  Lipton (Decaf optional) Tea
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup of sugar or to taste
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 can of evaporated milk

Add the tea bags, cinnamon stick and water into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once the tea water comes to a boil stir in the milk and add in salt and sugar. Stir. Lower the temperature and allow to boil for a few minutes. Do not let mixture boil to long because it will over flow out of the pan.
                                       Final product should look like the picture below.
