The tradition is centuries old…
Dating as far back as the 17th century in Russia, tea drinkers made tea concentrates to dilute with hot water. Try this easy and cost-effective method yourself!
Heat water in medium size pot until it begins to boil.
Turn off heat and add rooibos and lavender.
Steep 20 minutes.
Strain into a quart-size Mason jar.
Add vanilla and honey and stir to mix.
Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Create a ratio of one part concentrate to two parts water or milk.
For a sweeter, stronger tea, dilute 1:1.
Heat and serve.
