Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place the dried calendula blossoms into the bottom of a heat-proof mug or cup. Cover with the boiling water. Let it steep for 10 minutes.
  • After steeping, drink as is (with the blossoms) or strain the blossoms to enjoy a warm cup of tea. If serving iced, let the tea cool to room temperature before pouring over ice. See notes below for more tips! Enjoy.

Notes

Please note: The fresh flowers used in the photographs for this recipe, including the mandala, are not all calendula, they are there to be pretty (always an artist!:)), as this was a summer-inspired recipe! 
Optionally: stir in 2 teaspoons of a favorite sweetener (honey, coconut sugar, etc.) when the tea is warm or top off with a favorite milk (dairy or vegan).
To make this tea with a sun tea method: place the blossoms in a jar and cover with cold water; screw the lid on tightly. Place on a sunny windowsill or outside in the sun for at least 4 hours before enjoying.
