Lavender Iced Tea
from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John

1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lavender blossoms
Iced Tea or Arnold Palmer *
Ice cubes
A sprig of mint

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat,
combine the water, sugar, and lavender. Bring
to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and allow the syrup to
steep for approximately 30 minutes.

Pour the syrup into a sterilized glass jar through
a mesh strainer to remove the flowers.

Allow to cool.

In a tall glass, prepare the iced tea/Arnold Palmer.

Add the lavender syrup to tase.  Add ice cubes,
garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!


Arnold Palmer recipe:


It is possible that lavender tea or its products like oil are unsafe
for people undergoing surgery. This is because it might slow down
the central nervous system when used alongside anesthesia and other
medications taken before and after surgery.
