2 Quick & Easy Herbal Infused Iced Tea Recipes (Caffeinated & De-caffeinated)


2. Lemongrass Black Tea

Ingredients

  • Black tea or tea bags
  • Pure lemongrass essential oil
  • A jar with tight fitting side 
  1. Put a half pound of your favorite black tea in a glass container that has a tight fitting lid, or you can use tea bags if you prefer.
  2. Dispense 10 drops of Lemongrass pure essential oil on a paper towel and lay on top of your loose black tea or tea bags.
  3. Seal the jar with the tight fitting lid and leave for seven days. The scent of lemongrass will be absorbed into the tea leaves.
  4. After seven days remove the paper towel and prepare and serve your tea as you like it and enjoy.
  5. Keep your lemongrass scented black tea sealed tightly and store in a cool, dry place like a cupboard. If stored properly scented tea will usually last up to six months.
