I did it. I put on my heat. I figured 36 degrees meant it was okay to do it. Is this taboo? It’s only October 24th. I feel this is premature.

Simple and satisfying, this tea is fresh, bright, and balanced.
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from an orange! Not a carton)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 large, very ripe pear, grated
Put the water, orange juice, lemon juice, ginger, and pear in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium-low heat and let simmer for 30 minutes. Strain the mixture into two mugs, pressing the pulp to get all the flavor. Serve warm.
