Spring Green Tea

It is possible to drink something hot (like tea) and feel the effects of cooling herbs. While I love iced tea served cold on a steamy summer day, I still love hot tea too and I just don't want to give it up when the temperatures climb.

This recipe has a base of the mild green tea from our Spring Green Tea, so it has a bit of caffeination. The addition of Horsetail to serve as a mild diuretic and cooling herbs like Holy Basil/Tulsi and Peppermint make this a tasty tea choice for a hot summer day!

Hot Day Hot Tea

1 Tablespoon organic Spring Green Tea

1 teaspoon organic Horsetail

1 teaspoon organic Holy Basil Rama

1 teaspoon organic Peppermint leaf

1/2 teaspoon organic Lemon peel

Combine all the tea and herbs in an infuser, strainer, nest, or bag. Pour 1 1/2 - 2 cups boiling water over and allow to steep for 3-4 minutes. Strain out herbs and enjoy!
