Lemongrass-Lavender Green Sun Tea
I love sun tea! I've never tried to make a lemongrass-lavender blend though, so I'm excited to see how it comes out. Ingredients 16 cups cool Water 3 sprigs fresh Mint 6 Green Tea bags 1 tablespoon dried Lemongrass 1 tablespoon dried Lavender Optional: Honey or Agave Nectar for sweetening Instructions - Pour water in a large jar, preferably with a spigot for easy serving. - Add the mint and tea bags. - Place lemongrass and lavender in a tea ball or wrap in two layers of cheesecloth and tie closed with kitchen twine. - Allow to brew in the sun for the day. - Remove tea bags, and herbs; store in the refrigerator.

I love lemongrass in Thai food but I've never had it by itself in tea. I'm intrigued!

Lavender is supposed to make you sleep easier so this would probably make me so calm.
