Rose and Berry Sun Tea Blend Recipe
These are the quantities for 1/2 gallon of sun tea. Feel free to multiply for a larger amount!
- 2 Tablespoons organic Red Rose petals or Pink Rose petals
- 2 Tablespoons organic Marshmallow Leaf or Raspberry leaf
- 2 Tablespoons organic Blackberry leaf
- 1 Tablespoon organic Rosehips
Combine all the herbs in a large tea infuser, a cotton muslin bag, or wrap well in cheesecloth and tie to keep closed. You could also put the herbs in a jar loose, and strain after infusing. Cover with 1/2 gallon cool or room temperature water (spring water is lovely!) Cover and allow to steep--in the sun, a windowsill, counter-top, table, or wherever you have space. Allow to steep for several hours until desired strength. Strain herbs and serve. Refrigerate unused tea for up to two days. Feel free to add sweetener, lemon, or other flavors to suit your tastes!
