☼ 1/4 part red hibiscus flowers, chopped
☼ 1/4 part rose hips, cut and sifted
☼ 1/4 part lemon balm, cut
☼ 1/4 part lemon grass, cut
Mix well. Use about 1 tablespoon of tea to 8-10 oz of water. Add tea to a small teapot or some other container with a lid. Pour 𝘢𝘭𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵 boiling water into the container with the tea, cover and steep for 10 min. Pour through a tea or some other fine mesh strainer and enjoy hot or cold. We add stevia or honey. When it is sooo hot outside and we are losing water through sweating, I will use the honey. Otherwise, I use stevia.
Why is it called 𝘾𝙤𝙤𝙡 𝘿𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙏𝙚𝙖?
Because of the properties of the plants!
This may be one of the most cooling plants of the botanical materia medica. Hibiscus is often described as a refrigerant herb and has been used since the time of the pharaohs to support people when living at high temperatures.
I love this herb – it is a little sweet~sour, turns the water a deep red color when brewed and offers a little Vitamin C in food form. Although, when made as a hot tea, some of that C is lost. For me, it hits just a part of my palate and needs to be paired with something.
This is the “fruit” of the rose plant and is another cooling herb, high in Vitamin C, with a soothing action on the nerves. It also has a tangy~sweet flavor, no rose flavor. It is often included in herbal blends to help ease the ailments of seasonal allergies.
Not a mint, but a member of the mint family, this is usually considered a cooling and soothing herb. It has a rich earthy flavor that brings a needed depth to this tea blend.
Body cooling and heart-warming, this plant flavors the blend with a taste of lemon. In Eastern medicine, this herb is revered for its nutritive properties, and as a yin-yang balancer. There has been a lot of research on this herb but my interest in it was the flavor and cooling effects.
This is a 3 oz bag of loose tea for $8
