Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 212°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 5-7 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 5-7 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

The Hawthorn Leaf and Flower, or Crataegus monogyna, is but one of many species of Hawthorn that grow throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Crataegus monogyna is distinguished from the other kinds of Hawthorn Leaf and Flower by the color of its flowers, which are pink and red. Hawthorn is among such natural herbs that are highly resistant to drought, making it ideal for landscaping in the American Southwest and other arid regions. Like cedar, hawthorn is also durable and resistant to rot; it makes excellent tool handles and fence posts. Hawthorn Leaf and Flower as well as the berries are quite edible and in fact, are found in many different cuisines throughout the world. It is an ingredient in several different Chinese and Mexican confections; in northern Mexico, Hawthorn Fruit is dried, ground-up like wildcrafted herbs, and mixed with sugar and chili powder (!) to make tejecote paste, the basis of a candy called rielitos. Sliced Hawthorn Leaf and Flower can be eaten in salads as well. Studies regarding the health benefits of cut Hawthorn Leaf and Flower have been inconclusive. Origin: Croatia
