Here is an absolutely amazing combination of herbs, which when steeped in a clear vessel brings a wonderful beauty to drinking tea!
I always enjoy making this tea in a mason jar and watching as the flowers open up and the water turns a striking pinkish red colour.
It really adds to the stress relieving factor for me, to drink something so pretty!

For me, this is the perfect blend to enjoy after a busy day, when I am ready to sit down and relax on the patio.
I love making this tea as an iced tea and find it to be the perfect calming summer drink.
I notice drinking this tea that it can clear up mild headaches caused from different stress related situations. I find it also calms my mind really nicely before bed time, helping me sleep better.
I’ve also noticed a soothing action for any indigestion with the chamomile relieving cramping.
The cooling properties of the tea are really great for those hot days when I just can’t seem to cool down, these herbs cool and refresh me from the inside out.
I also really enjoy the taste of this tea. The hibiscus, lavender and rose buds come out really nicely.
I get best results with this tea by brewing up a large amount at once, usually a 1 liter mason jar. This way I have the tea readily available and I can sip on it throughout the day without having to make a fresh cup each time.
The second key for my success with this tea is steeping it for a super long time so I can get the most goodness out of the herbs. I do this by simply placing about 1 teaspoon of herb per cup of water (so 3-4 tsps in 1 liter mason jar) in the jar and then pouring the hot water over the herbs in the jar and leaving it for the rest of the day to steep.
I don’t strain out the herbs while I drink from the jar, as I find they continue to enhance the effectiveness of the tea by steeping longer. Over the day, the tea gets stronger and I find it works better for me. I often store it in the refrigerator as it cools down so it keeps even longer and if I don’t drink it all in one day, it is still good the next day.
I enjoy this tea most as an iced tea during the hot summer months when the stress of being hot all day gets to me. I let the tea steep like above and then toss in some ice cubes, or put it in the fridge to cool down more.
I also really like to make this tea without hot water by simply adding cool water to the herbs in a clear jar and then setting it out in the sun for a few hours to create a sun tea infusion. It adds a whole different angle to the tea.
Super nice combination of herbs here to help on those hot, busy, stressful days!
