Can't stop myself from diving deeper into the purple dream. I need more lavender, more purple.. Let's make Lavender ice tea. Sounds good?

I love iced tea, iced coffee for summer time and like to keep a variety of iced tea and coffee on hand in the refrigerator all summer long.
This aromatic herb goes incredibly delicious also for drinks.

Lavender Iced Tea:

1/2 gallon water
1 1/2 tsp lavender
2 tea bag (family size)
2 tsp honey ( skip it if you don't like your tea sweet or you're a vegan..still delicious!)
lemon slices to garnish.

Bring water to a boil. Make your tea in a pot with hot water, add lavender, let it steep for 4 minutes. Remove tea bags and also lavender using a strainer. If you like sweet, add honey. Chill it in the refrigerator.
Serve over ice.

Your summer drink is ready with many benefits like helping digestion and anxiety, relieves headache and relaxing. Lavandula angustifolia helps sleep as well. Recent researchers say too much iced tea might be a reason of a kidney stone. Life is... all about balance 🤣


Happy 4th of July everyone🗽
