When summer envelopes you in its heated embrace, cool off and refresh with lavender rose petal iced tea. Cherish the moment, swing in your hammock, lounge on your chaise and sip the delicate ambrosia of this infused water.
The ingredients are simple: lavender blossoms and rose petals.
*when gathering your rose petals (or whenever gathering any herbs and flowers) always make sure you’re using edible ingredients that weren’t sprayed with any pesticides or chemicals.
Make the ice cubes first as they’ll need time to freeze (make them days in advance to use throughout the week.)
Add rose petals and lavender blossoms to ice cube trays. See my tips for making flower ice cubes in my post ~ How to Make Flower Ice Cubes.
To make the tea; steep the lavender blossoms and rose petals in water using any tea infuser/ball or cheesecloth. I like to use two parts rose petal to one part lavender blossom to even the two out as lavender tends to be slightly more potent than rose petals. Steep longer for stronger flavor and let cool off in the fridge.
Add your beautified and flavor enhanced ice cubes just before serving.Lavender
