Lavender and lemon verbena tea

TEA TIME!

Lavender and lemon Verbena tea

 

I totally enjoy taking a break in the late afternoon to brew a cup of herbal tea from plants I grew in my garden. And of course, I experiment with lavender in my concoctions.

Here is one of my favorites:

For 1 cup (increase portions accordingly if brewing a pot)

1 teaspoon dried lavender blossoms

½ teaspoon lemon verbena

1 teaspoon honey (optional)

Hot water

 

Use a cup with an infuser or a paper tea sachet. Pour just boiled water over the herbs and steep for a few minutes. Don’t go past 5 minutes or the lavender takesa bitter, soapy flavor. When ready, remove the infuser and add honey to your taste.

Now put your feet up and chill!
