Now would you like to know how to make lavender tea so you can start benefiting from all of these great nutrients? Well next I am going to explain to you how you can make hot lavender tea.
Hot Lavender Tea
When I first heard of this I have to say I was sort of thinking “I don’t think this would be good tasting”. However, now that I have read more into it, it sounds amazing. And to be honest I will be trying this very soon. Apparently the lavender bud actually has a very sweet and savory flavor.
Now I also read where people would also add all natural honey and even sometimes a little bit of lemon for just a tiny bit extra flavor. So even if it is not the exact flavor you are looking for there are some way to dress it up some. However, I want to recommend using all natural items this way you still are getting the best possible nutrients and benefits you can.
Okay so here you how you make
Hot Lavender Tea
- You will start off with boiling water. (8oz) Now I am giving you this number so you can get a general idea of the amount of ingredients to mix. But you can always do more or less as you like or need.
- After the water reaches boiling, go ahead and pour it into a cup.
- Next you will want to take 4tsps. of freshly ground lavender (remember we are using the bud of the flower) and put it in a tea ball or a tea bag holder.
- Set this lavender down in the water and let it sit for 10 mins.
- Last but not least remove this lavender and sit down and sip away!
See it is a super simple recipe! Plus you can dress it up some if you like. Some ideas would be, mint, fresh cinnamon, lemon, and natural honey. Can you imagine how wonderful this would taste! It is making my mouth water.
But how about if you do not really like hot tea? Well no worries! I have a super simple recipe for making iced lavender tea as well!
Iced Lavender Tea
Personally, I like both hot tea and iced tea so I can see I would enjoy this either way. But I have to say a nice big glass of iced tea on a hot summer’s day is one of the best inventions there could be. And now there are also saying if I add lavender to this I could also be helping myself health wise as well. Yep, I am in what about you? O wait you need the recipe first!
Okay here you go.
Iced Lavender Tea
- You are going to start this one off the same way but a larger quantity. For this recipe you are going to want to boil a 1/2 gallon of water. (And just like above you can adjust this recipe for your own needs)
- Then you want to pour it into a pitcher. (It would be best to use one that will with stand the heat and not melt).
- Now for this next part you are going to add the freshly ground up lavender into the water. (You can play with this amount to fit your taste needs).
- Next it is best to let it sit for about 15 mins. This way the lavender’s flavors can completely mix in.
- And finally you can either leave the lavender in or strain it out. But go ahead pour you a glass add some ice and you have a nice cool refreshing yet healthy drink.
There you have it 2 very easy ways to make some really great sounding lavender tea. Both offer such great benefits. Now earlier I mentioned that these 2 lavender teas could help you with aches and pains, so how about we go ahead and look at how many different things the lavender tea can help you with!

Some lavender plants in my garden are full of bees.
It is one of the plants that attract so many bees… it is almost a little bizzzzzy concert… no wonder when i see and read all the ingredients in it.
I heard that drinking lavender tea helps to keep insects away… is that true?
Thank you for sharing such valuable i formation with us. Great work! Well done.
Hello. I am so glad you got a chance to stop by and read my article.
Yes it is true that even though lavender does repel a lot of insects, bees are one of the insect that are drawn to it. They happen to love its sweet smell. And although bees can be a tiny bit pesky, they can also be very helpful in making sure to help your lavender repopulate.
Now the smell of lavender will help to keep insects like flies, mosquitoes, and even fleas away, but it is also not a 100% proven fact. There are a lot of people that claim that it does help, science just has not completely confirmed it yet.
When it comes to drinking the tea and this helping to keep insects away I have not read this before. I did some looking and didn’t find anything about it. Mostly people were saying they either planted the lavender plants or they used dried lavender flowers to make sachets. Then they would put them around there house to keep out the unwanted insects. One other thing that was mentioned a lot was people are using the lavender oils to rub on there skin, which in turn not only helps with moisturizing but it also helps to repel though pesky insects as well.
So all in all I am not sure that drinking the tea would help with this particular issue, but lavender still can be used in other forms to help solve your problem.
I hope this was helpful for you and if you have any more questions or if I can help any other way please feel free to let me know.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day.
Melissa, this is a great review. I did not know you could eat or drink lavender! But… Probably it does not apply to all lavender plants; and that we have to be cautious. Lately I bought a levender plant and it said: not to be eaten…. Do you know a domestic plant that you would recommend?
Thank you so much for stopping by. I am very glad you liked it. I am still newly learning about lavender as well so I have to say I was surprised as well. But it seems its great benefits multiply when you drink it as tea.
As far as which ones you can eat, make sure it says culinary lavender. English lavender seems to be one of the most common and well recognized lavenders that are eatable.
I hope I have been of help to you. Please let me know if you have any more questions I will be glad to help.
Yes… thank you for the roundup!
I loved all the products you shared with us.
Have a great lavender day
