For a long while now, I have been making this “house specialty” tea. Everyone who sees me holding it asks what’s inside, and all those who join me for tea love it as much as I do. So, here is my secret recipe for this immune building, liver supporting, heart opening tea:
Organic blueberry (I use frozen)
Organic elder flowers (I use dried)
Organic orange peel (I use dried)
Organic hibiscus flowers (I use dried)
Organic rose buds and petals (I use dried)
Add all in a cup and pour boiling water. Let sit for 20 min and enjoy. The longer it sits, the deeper color and taste it gets. You can strain it, but I like to eat everything in there…..
Quantities? Depends on what you need on the specific day you drink your tea:
Was your day too bitter and you need more sweetness in your life – add more blueberries.
Are you grumpy and scolding everyone around? Add more orange peel for your liver.
Was your heart broken? Add more rose
Do you feel that you are getting under the weather? Add more hibiscus and elder flowers
Play with it, change, add, mix other things – make it your own and it will heal you…
**And if you want to taste my version of this tea (and probably another tea made with the wonderful herbs blooming right now outside) join us at the open house Sat June 2nd from 1-4 pm.
