The sun is out in Florida and I have herbs just waiting to jump in the sun tea jar. I have a sunny spot on the back patio where the sun hits early in the morning and lasts most of the day. I fill the jar with herbs, this time of the year I do not have fresh herbs unless I run to Lowes Garden Center to buy new plants. Sometimes I am ambitious enough to do that but today was not one of those days. I was working on a new book all day and faded before I got the tea started.
Now I am preparing it for tomorrow morning so I am gathering my dried herbs and putting them in the bottom of the sun tea jar. I have some Lavender and mint which go together pretty well. I also have some basil which is a pretty strong flavor and is rather spicy. It has a robust taste that leaves kind of a floral taste after drinking. I think I will add a bit of ginger which I have that is fresh and maybe some cinnamon sticks. That should be enough for the first tea of the season. I buy my dried herbs from mountainroseherbs.com and have found them to be a pretty good source with good customer service. I think I will have to investigate their tea blends and try some of them in the “tea jar” this summer.
Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions on combinations for sun tea. I have heard you can also make lunar tea but it is something I haven’t ventured to try just yet. Please comment and subscribe to the site to share your recipes and uses for oils and herbs.
Just a bit of good information. I just reviewed a book on natural remedies. PROTECT YOUR FAMILY FROM TOXIC PRODUCTS AND MEDICATIONSLearn how to replace the toxic products and medications in your home with over 215 healthier, all-natural alternatives.
