Lemon, Mint, and Rose Tea Blend

A subtle blend of all things nice, delicately woven together to touch on every note worth hitting. Dried rose petals and lavender provide just the right amount of romance to bright citrus and the soothing waft of mint, spiced ever-so-subtly with the woody warmth of cinnamon. Simply dry the ingredients from home, then stow away for safekeeping. An elixir intended for all the kinds of days ahead, requiring only some hot water and a few minutes of your time.

Lemon, Mint, and Rose Tea

3 lemons
1/2 cup dried rose petals
1/3 cup dried lavender
1/4 cup lemon verbena
3 bunches fresh mint, dried
3 cinnamon sticks, smashed

Use a vegetable peeler to peel the lemons. Place lemon peels on rack to dry, about 24 hours. Break into pieces. In a bowl, combine dried lemon peels, rose petals, lavender, lemon verbena, mint, and cinnamon. Use 1.5 tsp of tea blend per 8oz of hot water, steeping for 4-5 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
