ingredients

250 ml (1 cup) of water
30 ml (2 tbsp.) Dried lavender or 125 ml (1⁄2 cup) fresh lavender
1/2 cup (125 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar or 1/3 cup honey
1 liter (4 cups) cold water
Lemon and lavender wedges, for garnish

Instructions

Step 1. To make the lavender tea, bring the water to a boil, then remove from the heat. Add the lavender and leave to infuse, covered, for about 15 minutes, in a saucepan or a measuring cup.

Step 2. Over a pitcher, pass the infusion through a sieve. Add lemon juice and sugar, mix, then add cold water.

Step 3. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Serve with lemon wedges and lavender flowers.
