How To Make Natural Lavender Mint Tea
Lavender Mint Tea?
Admittedly, lavender mint may be an odd combination. The mint in tea can be sweet. Too sweet. Lavender can be too bitter or floral. Putting these two together creates a perfect balance and along with the benefits of both mint and lavender comes a delicious treat that may not be so much for your good health, but for your enjoyment.
- 1 teaspoon fresh lavender flowers, OR
- 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
- 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, OR
- 2 teaspoons dried mint leaves
- 1 cup boiling water
- OPTIONAL a pinch of rosemary, or rose for a different taste
- Making tea is pretty simple. What you will need is a tea ball for holding your loose ingredients. You may also hollow out a large store-bought tea bag and fill with your ingredients. *You don't want to pour your loose tea into the pot.
- Wait for your water to come to a boil. Take it off of the heat source and place in your contained tea. Let seep for about five minutes.
- If you would like sugar, add it to your cup and not the pot.
- Be careful as your beverage will be hot. Enjoy.
Options For This Tea
This particular tea is very good hot or cold. I prefer cold mint teas, but hot lavender. The choice is yours. If you prefer cold tea, follow the same quantity instructions, but refrigerate for about half an hour. You don't want to make the tea stale.
I will go ahead and add links for tea balls, the ingredients and tea pots at the bottom. These are what I personally use and have my guarantee of quality, as far as I am concerned.
