Make your own lavender mint tea
For the best tea pick flowers (and 15cm or so of stem) first thing in the morning, after dew has evaporated – the fresher the flower, the better the flavour.
Recipe: Nadene Hall
1 tsp fresh lavender flowers
1-2 tbsp fresh mint
1 cup water
Boil the water, then pour into a cup containing the flowers and mint. Leave for five minutes to steep – don’t leave it longer than this as fresh flowers can turn the water bitter if left too long.
