Lavender tea

As we are closer to winter, we wear more scarfs, more caps, still longing more for the warm and fragrant bath, little candles glitter in our rooms full of the aroma of scented lamps and... we love more to drink a good tea.
May be you haven't been lazy during the summer and you picked up lavender... If not, buy it and make a cup of lavender tea. This is one of my favourite herb teas. It's a nice tea in the evening, for excellent sleeping.  

Recipe for lavender tea
(about 3 cups)
1-2 tea spoons of lavender flowers
  3-4 dl of boiling water 

Pour the boiling water over the flowers, cover and leave for 5 -10 minutes. Strain and serve. The infusion can be repeated.

I recommend sweeten it with honey. Lavender is very aromatic, so do not make a strong brew tea as it will be very spicy,bitter taste and probably you couldn't enjoy its lovely smell and taste.
Tip: You will get excellent tea if you  add a little Peppermint or Melissa. You can also add lavender flowers into your black or green tea.

Why lavender tea? 
This mood enhancing tea , full of flavour, amazing, soothing tea works like antidepressant, helps with headache, cold, weakness, is antiviral...But of course, to prepare your lavender cup of tea you don't need to suffer of all this diseases, make it just to enjoy it and feel like lying in the middle of the lavender meadow. 
add lavender flowers into your green tea
