Today I’d like to highlight a YouTube video I made! I cover how to make Tangy Tension Tamer Sun Tea using lemon balm, linden, hawthorn leaf and hibiscus. it’s so great for calming the nerves and it has a very refreshing, tangy flavor that’s perfect for summer.

Have you ever made sun tea? I have some fond memories of sipping iced sun tea on the back porch when I was a kid. It was a special treat on a warm summer afternoon.

Solar infused teas harness the warmth of the sun to gently brew the tea, instead of heating the water.

Now throw in some linden and lemon balm and you’ve got pure relaxation in a glass!

I hope you enjoy!??

  • Hibiscus sabdariffa cools and soothes while uplifting the mood and supporting cardiovascular health and regulating blood pressure.
  • Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) is an incredible ally for the cardiovascular system. It’s also useful for treating stress, nervousness and general sleep disorders.
  • Melissa officinalis, better known as lemon balm, is a mint family perennial with a delicate lemony flavor that has been used for centuries as a nervine to calm the heart and the body and a healing tonic for the nervous system.
  • Tilia spp., also known as linden or lime flower, has relaxing, calming effects and is an effective anti-stress and anti-anxiety aid. It’s also great for reducing arteriosclerotic hypertension (high blood pressure) and insomnia related to nervous tension.
