If you like a strong tea, steep for 1 hour or add 2 more tea bags. Limes, lemons, and oranges are equally delicious in this tea. Adjust the sweetness as desired. Like lavender? Add a sprig or two to this tea for a burst of floral freshness.
Bring 16 ounces of water to boil in a saucepan, then add the oranges and tea. Stir, remove from heat, and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Strain and add 16 more ounces of cold water, then serve over ice.
i am glad i only made a half batch so that i only wasted 99 cents on an orange and 3 tea bags. yuch! bitter! soapy! (i think it tastes how yardleys lavender soap smells) but it made the house smell good. 3 hours later i can still smell the lavender
I am growing Lavender in my front yard. I was wonder what to do with it. It sounds like a nice tea. I might try it. I do drink tea, but I make so many home made foods that I try not to overload myself. Thanks
steep the tea for 30 minutes? I can't stand it when it gets bitter after steeping too long. If I make this I will make the tea in the fridge - steep it overnight - then maybe boil the lavender and fruit and add it.
