I found this recipe in an amazing book called Harvest Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary Garden Plants by
Lavender Tea with 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.
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
Steeping your Lavender Tea Blend
After harvesting your mint and lavender, check for bugs by washing your min 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!
