Lavender Tea

Lavender on Foodista

Lavender is best harvested when the plant has not yet gone to seed.  The flowering heads can be used either fresh or dried.

When available, I make my tea from fresh lavender.  It’s quite fun to see the colors of the buds diffuse into the water.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lavender (or more if you like)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

Directions

  1. Place lavender in tea cup, pour boiling water, steep for a couple of minutes, and enjoy.
