 How to make LAVENDER TEA Properly.

    • Lavender tea is a herbal tea (also known as a tisane) made by steeping dried lavender flower buds in water.
    • Naturally caffeine-free.

There are over 40 species of lavender — the English and French species are the most commonly used to make lavender tea.

  • The flowers and buds are purple, resulting in a slightly purple-hued drink.

  • There is zinc (along with potassium and magnesium) in lavender which may help you sleep better and longer. 

LAVENDER TEA BREWING GUIDE

TO MAKE HOT LAVENDER TEA
TEA: 
1/2 teaspoon loose lavender tea
WATER: 
1 cup (8 fl. oz.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE HOT LAVENDER TEA Properly (Hot & Iced) 

  • Loose lavender tea
  • Filtered water
  • Teapot with strainer
    My favorite glass teapot for making herbal tea.
  • Electric kettle with a temperature setting
    Set the water temperature to brew tea properly every time.

TO MAKE COLD BREW LAVENDER TEA

  • Loose lavender tea
  • Filtered water
  • Teapot with strainer
  • Ice

 

HOW TO MAKE LAVENDER TEA PROPERLY (Hot)

STEP 1: Boil water.

Boil water.

use an electric kettle with temperature setting to boil water for tea and I set the water to 208°F, which is a bit under a full boil.

Boil more than needed since you want extra to warm up the teapot.

Pour boiling water into a teapot halfway. Swirl it around a bit so the teapot can warm up. Discard the water.

I like to warm up the teapot so that when I add hot water to brew the tea, the water temperature doesn’t drop too much.

STEP 3: Put lavender tea into a teapot and add hot water.

Tea Tip: The most important thing to remember about making lavender tea is to resist adding too much lavender. It will taste too strong and will not be pleasant to drink.

STEP 4: Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.

Herbal teas like lavender are a lot easier to brew than other types of teas. You can brew them for more than 5 minutes and they won’t get bitter like black tea or green tea.

I like to stick to a 5 minute brew time for most herbal teas since it brews a nicely flavorful drink each time without being too weak or too strong.

If you want to sweeten your lavender tea, try brown sugar, honey.

HOW TO MAKE LAVENDER TEA (Iced)

Recipe.

  • 3 Tbsp loose leaf black or green tea (or 4 teabags)
  • 1 tsp dried lavender blossoms (or more to taste)
  • 1 qt boiling water
  • 1/2 cups raw sugar (may use white granulated sugar if desired)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of ice cubes

    STEP 1: Put lavender tea and water in a pitcher or glass container. Use cold or room temperature water to make cold-brewed tea. No need for hot water at all!

You can also use this cold brew maker if you make iced tea often.

STEP 2: Cover the pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. You can keep it in the refrigerator to cold steep for up to 12 hours.

STEP 3: Strain out lavender buds and pour tea into a cup. Since the tea is already chilled, ice is optional.

I don’t like to sweeten my lavender tea but if you want to, add simple syrup, which is dissolved sugar in equal part water. You can easily make quick simple syrup at home by mixing equal parts of sugar and hot water until the sugar dissolves.

LAVENDER TEA TIPS

Don’t add too many lavender buds to your tea since it’ll be overpowering. try a teaspoon
