Drinks, Hot, Tea: Horvath Tea


  • The making of Horvath Tea has been in my family for years and years. I can remember sipping on a half-cup that my dad would pour from cup to cup to allow it to cool down for me even as a small child. It was often something we had on Sunday mornings with Garlic Toast (look for that recipe soon too). Today, my 5 year old nephew is enjoying the tea on occasion when visiting grandma and grandpa. I hope the tradition lives on.


  • 4 tea bags of plain Lipton tea (I see they also have a decaf option)
  • 4 scoops of sugar (1 scoop = about 2 Tbsp)
  • 1 shot of Myer's Dark Rum
  • 2 Tbsp of lemon juice
  • Boiling water


  • In a large teapot, place the sugar, rum, and lemon juice
  • Next, dangle the tea bags in the pot.
  • Fill the pot with boiling water.
  • Put the lid on it and let it sit for about 10 minutes (all before stirring it).
  • Next remove the tea bags and stir.


  • Pour it into a cup and enjoy!


  • On occasion my family would receive or somehow acquire bottles of Hungarian Tea Rum. Yes, they have a special rum for tea that's more fragrant than other rums. The rum is really just in it to add flavor - not to get you drunk. When we were out of Tea Rum we would use Myer's Dark Rum.

Did you get drunk off the tea and then have sex with someone?

Uh please... this is family tea. If you split one shot up in a pot of tea, even if I have two cups of tea it's still only about 1/3 of a shot of rum. So you see - I cannot get drunk off that much.
