Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis show us how to take advantage of our outdoor plants by using them in food, beverages, cosmetics and other home remedies in HARVEST.
Combine lavender with chocolate mint leaves for a soothing, yet invigorating, tea.
- Gently rinse off any dirt or insects from the lavender and mint with cool water. Place the flowers and mint leaves into a teapot. Pour the boiling water over the lavender and mint, and let steep for 15 minutes. For a stronger tea, allow it to sit for another 5 minutes. Sip and enjoy.
