I first tried orange blossom water at a Lebanese restaurant in Old Town Orange a long time ago (anyone know if it’s still there?). The food was so good, and I remember my coworker at the time ordered me the orange blossom water. It was so perfumy and lovely-tasting, but I never encountered it again. Until this weekend! I was at this health food store called Down to Earth (cute name huh?), and just wasting time looking at random things I wanted to buy. I found bottles of orange blossom and rose water (which is too strong for me, so no to that!) and immediately thought of a bunch of cool things I could make with it. I’m thinking of making some dessert recipe with it later in the next couple of weeks, so tune in for that, but for now I’ll settle for a glass of orange blossom iced tea. How could you not drink it? It just sounds pretty
Orange Blossom Iced Tea
1 cup of your favorite tea, chilled
1/2 tsp orange blossom water
1 tsp honey
Orange slice, optional
Stir the orange blossom water and honey into the tea. Serve ice-cold, with a slice of orange if desired.
