Imagine a warm summer day and you’re really thirsty.
You would like a cup of tea, but you’re just too warm.
Here’s a wonderful nettle and dandelion and iced tea recipe that you should try with a fresh harvest of these wild wonder greens, in the spring/early summer, or with dried leaves and flowers any time of the year.
0,5 cup (118 ml) dandelion flowers
1 cup (236 ml) stinging nettle
3 tablespoon honey
Juice from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon grated ginger
Some dandelion and some stingy nettle for decoration.
Wash nettle and dandelion flowers thoroughly and put them in a 1 l jug.
Boil 1 liter of water and pour it over nettle and dandelion. Let it steep for 10 min.
Meanwhile squeeze lemon into the same jug.
Grate ginger and add it to a jug.
After the tea done steeping, strain it and add honey. Mix it well.
Now let the tea completely cool off and then put in in a fridge for an hour or more.
When the tea is cool, add a handful of ice cubes into a glass and pour the tea over.
Decorate the glass with fresh nettle leaves and dandelion flowers.
