Citrus Joy Breakfast Muffins

Have you tried using tea in your recipes? It can turn an OK recipe into something special. For Mother's Day this Sunday, we are making these lovely gluten-free muffins for breakfast. By steeping our Citrus Joy tea in a small amount of water, we get a strong flavor for adding into our recipe.

This is an easy and delicious way to surprise Mom on Sunday or to treat yourself to something out of the ordinary. Be sure to order your own Citrus Joy tea before the weekend sneaks up on you!
