Outside held the floral fragrance of lavender. Leggy mint stretched for the sun and the porch swing felt like a cozy place to sit. With the promise of more heat on the way, it felt impossible to dismiss the sun’s invitation to sit outside and relax with a cold glass of lavender mint iced tea.
Lightly floral, this lavender mint iced tea is cool and crisp. Though not technically a true “tea,” this herbal infusion captures the spirit of summer with refreshing yet mellow flavors from the garden. It can be sweetened to your liking. (Although, I find it enjoyable unsweetened too.) It’s also caffeine-free, making it ideal for afternoon sipping. Easy to make, I enjoy making a big batch of this tea in morning, so by the time the afternoon heat hits, refreshment is ready.
Floral, herbaceous French lavender perfumes the air as early flowers begin to bloom.
