LAVENDER LEMONADE ICED TEA

This super yummy recipe is soft and light, compared to the traditional Arnold Palmer recipes you’ll find with black tea. The difference is in the lavender. It creates a much softer and delicate flavor than black tea does. Personally, I love the full-body notes black tea has to offer, but I also really love the lightness of lavender and sometimes you need to switch it up, right? I’ll show you how to make your own lavender lemonade iced tea at home. I hope that you do!

There are four easy ingredients, with one extra optional ingredient if you’re into garnishes. To begin, steep two lavender tea bags into 2 1/2 cups of hot tea water. Allow it to steep for about 5 minutes then discard the tea bags. Let the tea water cool to room temperature. The condensation should reduce the cooled tea to about 2 cups.

While the tea is cooling, juice the lemons. Remember to remove the seeds. Add the juice to a pitcher then add ice, simple syrup and the cooled tea. Mix the liquid well, then ta-da! It’s all done! Wait! Don’t forget to garnish your glasses with lemon slices!

I really hope you love this recipe. It feels like a super creative one to make, one which gives me a ton of inspiration and I hope I can share that with you. Leave me a comment below if you’ve tried it, I’d love to know what you think 🙂
