Here’s a delicious, very refreshing herbal beverage for the summer
In jars, or one large jar, add equal parts Peppermint, Chamomile, Hibiscus, & Lemonbalm.
(In the quart jar, it’s about a tablespoon per each herb)
Add water, put lid on, & set out into the sunlight (or heck, just on the counter if it’s a cloudy day…) to infuse for a good number of hours.
Strain the herbs from the liquid using a fine mesh sieve
Little bitty bits of chamomile or peppermint or lemonbalm may remain
Ehng, ’tis not a problem.
Add to this a quality apple juice
…this will do quite well
Depending on how sweet you’d like it, I usually add anywhere from 1:3 to 1:2 tea to juice ratio
-so in case I didn’t write that out correctly, (it’s been a loooong time since I’ve been in Math class) I like it best when it’s either equal parts tea & juice or mostly tea.
Do what works for your tastebuds.
Makes a nice ice cube or Popsicle
Perhaps add fresh basil or mint after it has chilled
