1.Place 2 to 3 stems in a closing container *.

2.Add 200ml (a cup) of hot water, temperature 90οC *.

3.We wait for 10 minutes letting the herb take the hidden power out of it!

Time depends on how “strong” we want our drink, the more we leave it the stronger.

4.Remove the herb from the pan.

Our drink is ready to enjoy!

If you prefer sweeter flavors, add a little honey.

* We want our water to be just before the boiling point in order not to lose the essential oils of our herb with the steam, while the utensil must be closed in order to capture properties and aromas in our hot cup.


Follow the steps as in the preparation of the hot with the only difference that we double the dose of the herb.

At the end we add our tea to a glass full of ice and enjoy it pure or with a little honey!
