I can not believe I have only reviewed this tea one time, and it was frightful review about how adding lemon to this tea made it turn vicious.
What a different day! You see, after I tried that sample, I bought a one pound bag of lavender from Harney and Sons. I was planning to use it for the occasional cup of tea, for adding to other teas or tisanes like tulsi, and for making sachets and such.
I recently got the idea that since I like rosemary water very much, I might like lavender water. I simply put about two teaspoons – maybe a tablespoon – of lavender blossoms into a carafe and filled it with cold water and put it in the fridge. At first the water stayed clear, for hours and hours. By the next morning, it was yellow. I poured it through a strainer and tasted and found it a bit strong, so I drank it mixed half and half with cold water. It was perfect! This also stretched my carafe and gave double the cold tea I had anticipated. I think this will be a regular thing to alternate with my rosemary water, since I don’t have quite as much rosemary growing as I used to have. It is so relaxing and I really slow down and breathe when I drink it.
