Hibiscus Retreat - Iced Tea Favorite
DESIRING A FULL BODY MASSAGE with the sweet tropical trade winds cooling your skin? A fantasy for many, yes. A perfectly acceptable substitute is a cup of our fruit & floral infused Bai Mudan (white peony) tea. The beautiful color and added use of honey to balance the tart hibiscus flowers makes for a delightful iced tea. One sip (OK, maybe two) and you will be transported to a tropical paradise retreat. A heavenly blend.
Bai Mudan/White Peony
Lemon Peels and Lemon Oil*
~Directions: Stir Contents. Steep 1 heaping tsp per 6 oz of water cooled from boiling anywhere from 2 - 8 minutes. (Allowing longer then the typical 2 minute steep time for white tea is acceptable, as this is a white tea/herbal blend). Strain and sip!
Delicious Iced Tea Recipe:
In a tempered 1 quart mason jar, add 4-5 tsp. of loose herbs. Fill jar 1/2 way with just boiled water. Cover, steep for at least 10 minutes. Fill up jar with cold water or ice water. Place in fridge to cool for a couple hrs. OR pour over ice and sip immediately! Makes 4 cups. Recipe works well doubled with 2 quart mason jar as well. To strain, simple pour over a mid size mesh strainer (think sifting powdered sugar) or use metal band to secure a small piece of cheesecloth to the jar. Keep covered with lid 3 to 4 days in fridge.
