Herbal Lavender Tea with Chocolate Mint Recipe

I used fresh chocolate mint and lavender from the garden because it’s July and we have both of them. You could also used dried, but chocolate mint is hard to find. Most gardeners grow it themselves from seed or buy plants. There are many other tea blends you can create with fresh garden hers. Learn how to grow a tea garden here.

Makes 2 Cups

  • 10 to 15 (or more) fresh or dried lavender flowers
  • 4 to 5 freshly harvested mint stems
  • 2 cups of boiling water

How to steep your herbal tea blend

After harvesting your mint and lavender check over for bugs. Give them a gentle wash in cool water. You can place the herbs in a tea pot, or did what I did and gently pick off each flower and mint leaf into a mason jar. If you have less than the amount below just reduce the amount of boiling water.Pour the boiling water over the herbs and let steep for 15 mins. Strain and enjoy!
