Vulcans were probably not huge on intoxicants, which is why this recipe for a refreshing and mentally invigorating iced tea contains only a blend of three teas with verjus, the nonalcoholic juice of unripe wine grapes. It’s a great way to get some refreshment before a smug and self-satisfied meditation session.
