A nice cup of tea, hot or cold is relaxing and refreshing.
Place 11/2-2 tbsp of roasted twig tea in 1 1/2 quarts of water and bring to a boil. When water comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for several minutes (for a light tea 2-3 min) For a darker, stronger tea simmer for 10-15 min. To serve, place a small metal or bamboo strainer in each cup and pour out the tea. Twigs can be left to dry, saved and reused several times.
-Let tea cool, add lemon or lime slices , a little sweetener and serve chilled.
– Not ideal , but if in a pinch tea can be made in a coffee maker.
