Oatstraw Tea

2011 1214

A refreshing (and healthy) summer drink I'm enjoying at the moment is something my Mum came up with. It sounds strange, but stay with me... iced oatstraw tea with honey and apple cider vinegar, .

The first time Mum gave it to me I thought it was a soft drink, it had that kind of tang. I really loved it. I brew the oat straw overnight like the Wise Woman says to do, making a nourishing herbal infusion and then add a couple of tablespoons of Wescobee apple cider vinegar with honey to my cup.

I've tried making a jugful too instead of adding the vinegar cup by cup. I didn't have any of the vinegar with honey so I used straight acv and raw local honey.

Here is the recipe for a jugful:

1 Litre Oatstraw nourishing infusion
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey

by the cup:

1 glass of oat straw tea
2 - 4 Tbs of Wescobee apple cider vinegar with honey (depending on the size of your glass)

You will probably want to adjust the amount of vinegar to your taste, I like it pretty strong, and with plenty of ice.
