So long ago, back before Google was turned into a verb, I looked up Duke's webpage through Yahoo. I wanted to know more about the guy I had a crush on. And I wondered a lot more when I found a recipe for hot orange tea on his site.
A decade has gone by, and I've learned a lot about Duke. I ended up becoming his girlfriend, then his fiancee, and finally his wife. And I've learned that the hot orange tea recipe he had on his site - definitely delicious! I love it on a cold day, but it's great to drink cold too!
And Duke's site just isn't the same without this. So here I am... hacking his main page... to make it right.
Enjoy this recipe!
