My girlfriend Eureka sent over some basil flowers last week. She had shared her basil herbal tea recipe with me before and I had enjoyed it immensely.
Cinnamon, lemon, lime and Italian basil flower heads
Boiled up a big pot of water and when it was bubbling hot, I turned the stove off and dumped the flower heads inside to steep.
Left it for the entire day.
Later (about 8 hours later) I strained off that delicious goodness, added one tablespoon of sugar for good measure and stored it on the fridge.
Good for internal cleansing and as a tonic for the body.
Served ice cold it was oh sooo GOOD.
