This is a very simple but incredibly tasty tea blend. I guess its not technically a tea because it has no tea in it, but it is a floral infusion of wild herbs and delicate flowers that combine into an awakening and lively blend. It’s like a big, wet, sloppy on the lips from summer. It’s also totally customizable, so switch in your favorite herbs just make sure they are edible. If you have any doubts speak to an expert. I can’t take responsibility for any poisoning!

     For the tea, make 3 cups:

  • 6 heads of fresh lavender
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 3 white sage leaves
  • 8 rose petals
  • 15-20 heads of chamomile
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger sliced
  • 1/2 a lemon, lime or orange cut into flat slices

Wash the herbs and flowers gently in cold water. Put into a tea pot and pour on boiling water. Allow to brew/steep for 5 minutes, pour through a strainer and add honey to taste if you wish. Garnish with fresh mint and a lemon slice.
