Nick and Nat’s Uptown 21 has a Brown Bag Friday lunch. The concept is simple: $5 for a one of a kind sandwich with homemade iced tea until sold out. Sandwich details are tweeted a day or two before and unless you act quickly, you will miss out. Recently I was lucky enough to stop by and enjoy a fantastic veggie creation of Portobello mushrooms in a cheesy sauce with crispy fried onions. But the real star of this $5 lunch was the Spiked Rhubarb Iced Tea. Days after having this I was still dreaming of that tasty drink and fantasizing how I might create it at home.
Spiked Rhubarb Iced Tea
10 cups water
4 Tbsp fennel seeds
2 Tbsp coriander seeds
6 stalks rhubarb chopped
10 Tbsp loose white tea (or 5 tea bags)
¼ cup honey
Bring all ingredients to a boil and allow to steep at least 20min and up to 2hrs. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and serve over ice. Enjoy!
