Chamomile/lavender/mint sun tea

This really is the best cold tea ever. In addition to being hugely refreshing when the weather is warm, it also provides a little tranquility buzz, making it great to have with dinner or in the evening before bedtime, or in the afternoon if your spouse is obsessing about the shop he's building on the south side of the property and wants to discuss every minor detail with you. 

Chamomile Lavender Mint Iced Tea

(makes 14 cups)

A cup of loosely packed fresh mint leaves

2 tablespoons of lavender (I use French)

1 - 1 1/2 tablespoons camomile leaves (or 4 chamomile tea bags)

Mix all the ingredients together, and fill a one-gallon jar with lukewarm water.  Place in sunshine for a few hours.  Remove/strain all tea bags and flowers with a cheesecloth and place tea in fridge for a few hours to chill.  

Enjoy the (legal) mellow feeling.


  1. I could use some legal mellowing! This sounds wonderful. Can't wait to have my herbs to make this!

    1. It really is cool and delicious. Makes you feel like you're at the spa!
