SERENDIPITEA – A RECIPE FOR A REFRESHING HERBAL TEA

Iced tea, hot tea…I don’t care…I love tea!! If you are looking for a delicious tea that you can serve to friends in any season, SerendipiTea is the one! Based on a Rosemary Gladstar recipe, this is a minty, refreshing tea that will keep you coming back for more!

It is a calming, uplifting blend that includes peppermint, spearmint, lemon balm, chamomile and rose petals. It also has either blue malva or blue cornflowers.

The recipe is written in parts. A part can be any measurement. If you want to make it easier, one part can equal one cup.

I use dried herbs in this recipe. Blue malva flowers are difficult to source. Blue Cornflowers are just as lovely, in my opinion and much easier to find. I buy most of my herbs here.
