Talula's Table, Rosemary Latte, in Kennett. I'd always adored the flavor of Rosemary as a savory flavor, but had never thought of it as a sweet flavor. The same friend had a recent dinner party. I honestly can't remember if it was during an Ostara bonfire or just a nice dinner one weeknight. Nonetheless, after dinner, coffee talk started. "You have to try this," Laura said to the guests. As I mentioned, I don't do coffee so I was just enjoying the chatter of the evening. Laura had different plans. Knowing how much I adore rosemary Laura suggested a rosemary steamer instead of a Latte. I'm down!
It was heaven in a mug. Heaven. I quickly asked Laura how she had made such amazing treats in her kitchen and I was hooked. Laura had used rosemary teabags, but I didn't find them in the stores I looked, and frankly wasn't thrilled about rosemary I couldn't see or smell beforehand. I just grabbed the herb pack seen above from my local produce section.
I grabbed four healthy sized sprigs of rosemary and threw them in my tea infuser (below) and filled it with three cups of boiling water. I let it sit over night to steep, though with rosemary being woody, I could have sped the process by boiling the rosemary with the water and making a decoction.
