does the lavender have to be dry? We have a ton of plants by our yard...?

I love your recipes, you have something for everyone.

A shame that you have sugar as one of the ingredients! you don't need sugar for tea! honey or agave is A LOT healthier!

Good point Tajna!

Processing used to produce agave nectar causes much of its fructose content to exist in isolated form, the same as high fructose corn syrup which is known to be unheathy. Honey contains fructose. When too much fructose enters the liver, the liver can't process it fast enough so it starts making fats from the fructose and sends them into the bloodstream as triglycerides. A tiny bit of Stevia might be the best option. Studies show that stevia may act is an insulin sensitizer that can aid in glucose tolerance and clearance after a meal.

Or Stevia.

I never thought of using lavender this way! Sounds wonderful. I will use stevia instead of sugar, though!

No, honey nor agave nectar are not any healthier for you. Sugar is sugar. Your body treats it all the same. Sweeten it with what you want but don't think you're any better.

I used 1/2 cup of organic agave nectar instead of the sugar. YUM! Garnishing each glass with a sprig of fresh lavender instead of a lemon wedge makes it beautiful.

we make this with stevia all the time, it is delicious!

Sweeten with stevia!
