Some time ago I stumbled onto a lavender flavored honey recipe and wondered if I could adapt it our herbal tea. So last October I tried it with our Blood Orange and Red Bush Chai, both are herbal and caffeine free. I have attempted this with our flavored rooibos herbal teas and tea
Wow, what a surprise. I gave it to a couple of our customers and to my surprise they
wanted to purchase it.
Use about 2 tablespoons of Blood Orange or Red Bush Chai per 1 cup (8 ounces) of honey. The herbs will absorb some of the honey so you’ll end up with about 6 ounces when it’s all done.
* Clean, dry jars and lids (half-pint and pint mason jars work well)
* Wooden or plastic spoon handle, (avoid metal, this can the scratch jars)
* Clean cloth/paper towels for wiping jar rims. Keep extra on hand because this could be
messy the first time you do it.
* Fine Mesh Strainer
1.Combine herbs and honey: Place herbs in the bottom of a jar and fill the jar almost to the top with honey. Stir to coat the herbs with honey. Top off with more honey to fill the jar. Wipe the jar rim with a clean cloth and cover tightly.
Tip: Label the jar with the contents and date so you don't forget!
For best results use pasteurized or spring raw honey.
