Lavender tea is a herbal tea made from the dried flowers of the lavender plant, which is native to the Mediterranean region. The tea has a sweet, floral aroma and a delicate, slightly sweet flavor with hints of mint and rosemary. It is often enjoyed for its calming and soothing effects, and known to have a relaxing effect on the mind and body, helping to relieve stress and anxiety, promote restful sleep, and ease headaches and tension.
In addition to its calming properties, lavender tea is also a good source of antioxidants and can support digestion and healthy skin. It is naturally caffeine-free, making it a great alternative to traditional caffeinated teas.
To prepare lavender tea, simply steep a teaspoon of dried lavender flowers in hot water for 5-10 minutes. The tea can be enjoyed hot or cold and is often served with a drizzle of honey or a slice of lemon for added flavor.
