Rhubarb Tea

on

I look forward to the local farm stands opening each year around the middle of May.  Some of the first goodies available are rhubarb and mint.  It’s become a Spring time tradition to make rhubarb tea in my home.  It’s delicious with fresh squeezed orange juice, tea, and honey.

I chop the rhubarb into 2-3 inch pieces and simmer for 10 minutes.

Then I remove the rhubarb and press all the water out.  Add mint and a few tea bags to the hot water.  Allow it to steep for 10 more minutes.

Stir in juice and honey.  Pour everything into a pitcher, add cold water to taste, pop it in the fridge for a few hours then enjoy!

  1. That actually sounds tasty! I’m not a fan of rhubarb itself but the sharp juice, yes!
