Wild Summers Eve Flower Tea

Posted by Lindsay Kluge on Sunday, June 11, 2023

An end of spring ritual, harvesting whatever herbs are on hand for you this season and enjoying the floral flavors of a wild summers eve flower tea. I have chamomile and lavender growing in my garden, with yarrow and field mint speckled around the fields by my house. I love to harvest a few bits of each in the evenings and steep in warm water for 10-15 minutes. Calming chamomile and lavender are a sweet way to relax into the day, while strengthening yarrow replenishes my energetic reserves from the long days. A hint of mint opens my senses, and together it’s a beautiful seasonal combination grounding me into the joy of late spring. Summer’s eve is right around the corner now…

Wild Summers Eve Flower Tea

  • 1 part lavender flowers
  • 1 part chamomile flowers
  • 1 part yarrow leaves and flowers

Serves 1
I'm using the fresh flowers this season, however dried leaves and flowers will also work for this recipe. Equal parts of the herbs, covered with 6-7 ounces warm water steeped for 10-15 minutes. Strain, and enjoy on the nearest front porch. You can re-steep the flowers for a second cup!
