squeeze my lemon teabags


so, i've dismounted my lover after a long night of sweaty love making.  i'm laying on a bearskin rug basking in the glow of a crackling fireplace.  my lover is worn, glistening and a bit parched.

"thirsty, lover?"  she attempts to answer.  "shhh, shhh, don't say a thing.  daddy will be back in minute..."

lemon-ginger tea
  • 4 cups water 
  • 2 lemons, juiced (or lime, if you prefer) 
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger 
  • 1/4 cup honey 
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 10 leaves of fresh mint 
  • thinly sliced lemon or lime, for garnish 

  • boil water in a medium sauce pan. add cinnamon, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • add honey, sugar, lemon/lime juice (some zest if you'd like) and the ginger to the water. 
  • simmer and whisk occasionally for 10 min. 
  • remove from heat, add mint, cover and let steep for 20 minutes
  • strain, garnish and serve hot

...i return to my lover moments later with my steaming love potion.  "here ya' go you sexy little..."

stumbling on a misplaced sex toy, i fling 212 degrees of searing hot tea over my lover's bare skin.  she recoils in fiery anguish as her skin blisters from my lemony-ginger shower.

i think to myself, "hmm, her cries are somehow different now.  i don't think she fully appreciates the effort that went into that tea."
