Lavender Tea Recipe


This was a very fragrant tea! I added more lavender from my garden than was called for in the recipe. I also added some fresh lemon balm. I had to pass on the sugar.

Ingredients:

* 1-1 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender blossoms or 2 teaspoons fresh lavender blossoms
* 2 tablespoons earl grey loose tea
* heavy cream
* sugar cubes

See recipe here.

I enjoyed this tea with just the lemon balm and lavender for a calming bedtime tea.

Hey, Alexandria -

I have never had a lavendar tea before, but I have enjoyed lavendar lemonade. There are lavendar farms about two hours from here and last summer we visited them. They served the lemonade and lavenar ice cream! I never knew there were so many different uses for the herb.
