How to Make Heavenly Herbal Tea

How to Make Heavenly Lavender Tea

By Jennifer Toppel

This herbal tea is actually called Liquid Heaven. It is a beautiful combination of Green Tea, Orange Pekoe Tea, Chamomile flowers and, Lavender flowers. This is the perfect tea to cozy up with a nice book after a hard day's work. It also will benefit if you are feeling under the weather or have a slight cold.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Extra Large Mug
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of Green Tea
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Chamomile Flowers
  • 1 teaspoon of Lavender Flowers
  • 2 Tea Bags of Orange Pekoe Tea
  • 7 teaspoons of sugar (you may adjust accordingly)
  • 2 tablespoons of half and half, or a fat free or lite cream or milk (you may forgo the dairy if unable to drink milk or dairy products)

  1. Place green tea, chamomile and lavender flowers in a tea ball. You can buy these tea balls in any gourmet food shop or even in your local grocery store.
  2. Place the tea ball and the teabags in an extra large mug. Pour boiling water over all; set timer for 3 minutes.
  3. When timer goes off, remove the teabags only; leave tea ball. Set timer for 1 minute and 30 seconds more.
  4. When timer goes off again, remove tea ball and squeeze liquid from contents into mug. Stir in sugar, to taste, and half-and-half.
