The light, floral flavors of lavender and rose mesh beautifully with this black tea blend. Serve this tea at your next gathering, or just when you want a touch of "fancy" for yourself. It's also a wonderful iced tea! Check out the instructions for iced blending below.
Hot Tea: 1 heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7 to 9oz./200 to 260ml of water in your teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea, leaving to steep for 3 to 7 minutes.
Optional: Add milk or milk substitute and sweetener to taste.
Iced Tea: (Makes 1QT) Add 6 heaping teaspoons of loose tea into a teapot. Pour 1 ¼ cup/315ml of boiling water over tea. Steep for 5 minutes, then quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water. Pour tea into pitcher, straining out the tea leaves. Add ice, top up with water, garnish and sweeten to taste.
For another method, try cold brewing your iced tea. Fill your serving pitcher with cold water (1QT), and then add in a bag of roughly 5 to 6 teaspoons of tea. Leave in the refrigerator over night and in the morning, fresh cold tea is waiting for you!
