In the meantime, I dream about June days when the roses are in bloom --- and the lavender plants are in full bud. The lavender tea set has been washed, dried, and put back on the shelf --- awaiting the days when 'lavender tea' can be enjoyed again. Lavender scones, lavender sugar, and lavender tea --- all made from fresh, organic lavender bud --- pure heaven!
Here's how to make a perfect cuppa lavender tea:
1 pot of your favorite tea (plain)
1 tsp. of fresh, organic lavender bud
Steep for 3 - 4 minutes and decant. Serve with your favorite sweetener (mine is the sweet herb stevia) and enjoy!
It is SO delicious! There's something delightful about the astringent and distinctive taste of lavender. Give it a try.
