Vitamin C Tea Blend

In addition to this favorite Turmeric Wellness Tea (that we love and keep in stock), we also regularly play around and experiment with other tea blends. This has become a favorite - a strong Vitamin C Tea. It is much appreciated when we need a bit of an immunity boost, or for the times when we're stressed, over-worked, or just dragging a bit. Hibiscus and rose hips are both Vitamin C power houses, and I like to add a good bit of saffron, and lemon peel for dimension and flavor. We love the pronounced tang and vibrancy of this tea straight, but feel free to sweeten if you prefer.

3 tablespoons hibiscus, crushed
3 tablespoons rose hips, crushed
a generous pinch of saffron threads
1 teaspoon dried lemon peel

Combine all the ingredients and place in a container. Pour ~three cups of water over a generous 1 tablespoon of the tea blend. Allow to steep for at least four minutes, longer if you prefer a stronger brew. Strain and enjoy. You can use for multiple brews.
