Recipe: Flowers tea

Herbal and spiced teas
May 23, 2009


It's blooming time, and I start to harvest some flowers to dry and store them for winter herbal teas.

Flowers tea

These are clover flowers, roses and bitter orange flowers.
When they will bloom, I will add also marigold, wood sorrel, cinnamon basil flowers and flowers from other aromatic herbs.

Now, with the fresh flowers and some other ingredients fresh or dryed, I prepared a delicious and refreshing herbal tea.
