Botanicals tea is made with a powdered Botanicals of your choice.
You'll need a kettle, any basic strainer (even cheesecloth will work), Botanicals powder, water, and a source of heat. That's it!
Bring about a cup and a half of water in a standard kettle or any deep pot to a soft boil.
Add pre-measured Botanicals powder directly into boiling water.
Lower the heat and let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Hold a strainer over your mug and pour the liquid directly in. Add lemon juice.
Discard the matter collected by the strainer (or save for a future, weaker brew).
Optional: Flavor the tea with a spoonful of honey, sugar, cinnamon, or stevia. Hot Day? Pour the tea over ice, or let it cool in the fridge for an hour.
Pro Tip: Slice a lemon or lime in half and add it to the water before you brew. The acidity will protect the Botanicals's alkaloids and add great flavor to your drink.
