How to make Lavender & Lemon Iced Tea

by Monica and Breanne, during the heatwave!

With the weather warming up, iced teas are a delicious way of refreshing yourself and so much better for you than sugary sweet drinks. Get kids into herbal teas early too - you won't regret it. This tea is calming as well as refreshing as lemon balm is a gentle sedative and also soothing to the stomach. 

 

Ingredients

1/4 cup fresh lemon balm leaves (1 tbsp dried lemon balm herb)
2 tbsp dried lavender buds (or flowers)
2 cups hot water
2 cups ice cold water

Directions

Add the hot water first and let the tea infuse for 5 to 10 minutes.

Then add the iced cold water.

Stir or shake.

Garnish with a slice of fresh lemon and serve with ice in a pretty glass or a mason jar.
