Make This Soothing Tea with Fresh Orange Blossoms

Orange flowers carry the most intoxicating scent in spring.

Maybe you’ve even wished that you could gather a handful of citrus flowers and bottle them all up—but they’re simply too good to keep bottled up.

Pick them fresh while they’re in peak season, and steep the orange blossoms to make a delicious herbal tea packed with health benefits.


4 cups water 4 teaspoons loose green tea 20 fresh orange blossoms 20 fresh spearmint leaves 1/4 cup sugar

Add the water, green tea, orange blossoms, and mint leaves to a tea kettle and bring to a boil.

Remove the kettle from heat and let steep for about 5 minutes.

Strain and transfer to a carafe, then stir in the sugar until dissolved.

Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve the tea over ice.
