New Orleans coffee and tea at Lucile’s Creole Café in Denver, CO

The Kup Kollar on the glass keeps my hands dry while I knit.

While Perry enjoyed his full-bodied private blend Southern Louisiana style Chicory Coffee, I enjoyed New Orleans Spiced tea. It was one of the most full-flavored teas I’ve ever tasted. The secret is using cinnamon oil and orange oil instead of dried cinnamon and orange pieces. After eating only half of the huge bowl of buttery long-cooked grits, I sipped the tea and knitted while the others finished their breakfast.

I bought a tin of New Orleans Spiced Tea to brew at home. The tin comes with directions for brewing.

Feeling full after our family breakfast at Lucile’s, Sean and Pam rode home on a Denver city bus and we drove south to our home.
