How to batch your Herbal Lemonade

Find what’s good for you and do it in bulk.

One of our favorite application of working with herbal medicines is preparing irrestably delicious lime iced tea. The side effect of having your medicine this way is that you can expect it to go quickly. For this reason we suggest batching it in gallons if you are going to share. You can also rest assured that the herbs that are supporting you are ready when you need them. We will share a simple recipe for effective and delicious medicinal herbal lime-aid that you can use with for any of our blends.

Step 1: You’ll need a 28G TIN of your desired blend. In this tutorial we are using

Dropping Seeds SUN herbal blend
• Brown sugar syrup (3/4 cups organic brown sugar, 3/4 cups water) •
• 3-4 limes •
• an electric kettle •
• a handheld citrus press •
muslin bag
• knife •
• funnel •
• cutting board •
• a sealable gallon jug. •

Step 2: Add the full contents of your 28G herbal blend {or 1/3 of the contents of our hemp blends} to the Muslin bag. Pull the draw strings and tie them closed beneath the drawstring channel.

Step 3: Add the muslin bag to the electric kettle filled with at least one liter of water.

Step 4: Set the temperature to 180º F and steep for half an hour and press the muslin bag with a spoon periodically for best results.

Step 5: Half each lime.

Step 6: Press each half lime, faced down, then rotate the pressed lime sideways and press it again.

Step 7: Add lime juice to the gallon jug.

Step 8: Making the brown sugar syrup, combine 3/4 cups of organic brown sugar and water to a sauce pan and bring it to a boil, stirring until the sugar is totally dissolved.

Step 9: Remove the sauce pan from the heat and the amber colored syrup to cool for at least 5 minutes.

Step 10: Add the brown sugar syrup to the gallon pitcher.

Step 11: After a half hour has passed, combine the tea. It should be a rich color. Given the muslin bag a good press before transferring is recomended.

Step 12: Fill the remainder of the jug with cool water.

Step 13: Seal and shake the jug well.

Step 16: Celebrate by serving yourself the first cup and set the rest to chill.

How to Make the Perfect Cup of Herbal Tea?

The words “a perfect cup of Herbal tea” can be heard in every coffee shop or kitchen, even though Herbal teas are technically not teas. True “teas” come from the Camellia Sinensis plant, on the other hand, DroppingSeed blends are actually herbal infusions, also called tisanes come from a water-based infusion of herbs, flowers or leaves.

Essentially, what we are really asking for is a perfect cup of an herbal infusion or herbal tisane.

Step 1 is warming up filtered water or better yet, spring water.

Step 2: While you wait for the water to warm, add One Teaspoon of your favorite herbal blend (ours is SUN) into a tea ball.

Step 3: Secure the tea ball closed.

Step 4: Once the water is warm, add 1 cup of water to your cup.

Step 5: Add the tea ball to your warm cup of water.

Step 6: Allow the herbs to steep for 5-10 minutes.

Step 7: And finally, slowlllllly enjoy sipping your herbal infusion.

Tumeric, Strawberry & Rosemary Tea

With ALL the emotional and mental up and downs, everyone’s immune system can use a boost.

These simple three ingredients jumped out at me when my daughter got a head cold:

Turmeric to decrease inflammation 🌾
Rosemary with it’s anti bacterial powers 🌿
Strawberry filled w/ antioxidant strength 🍓

Cut all the ingredients into smaller pieces plus hand smushed the strawberries and boiled in a medium pot. Once cooled, I flavored the tea with lime and honey and was pleasantly surprised to see the color vibrate in this tea.

Had the whole family happily drinking it. Even turned it into popcycles to ease the fever. I also secretly added a small clove of garlic to make it extra medicinal … but don’t tell my kids 🤫

How to Steep Your Tea

Steeping is the soaking in liquid (usually water) of a solid so as to extract flavours or to soften it.¹ Tea is the world’s second most consumed beverage after water. Americans consume a whopping  3.6 billion gallons of tea a year.

When SIPPING Dropping Seeds, don’t forget the following:

– WATER, the fresher the better! Invest in a water filter and if you are near a drinkable water source like a spring, bless it before using it.

– BOIL your water right before the point it starts to bubble, you want it to keep all its healthy properties

– 1 TABLESPOON of herb to each cup of water

– STEEP to no less the 3.27 secs … just kidding. You should follow your intuition on how rich and deep you want the herbs in the blend to be infused into the water

– ENJOY because without this .. its all not worth it.
