Preparation of Oganiko hemp tea is very similar to any other tea. You should take tea bag per cup and pour hot water over it. Just let it steep (soak in water) for 2-5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the your tea. As with any other tea, you can modify it to taste by sweetening it, adding milk or a squeeze of lemon.
As summer is supposed to be here, we have been been making Hemp Iced Tea, a basic recipe which we’d like to share with you:
- Simply place the 3 Hemp tea bags in a large heatproof glass pitcher. Use a vegetable peeler to strip the peel from a lemon or orange, avoiding as much of the white pith as possible, and add the peel to the pitcher.
- Pour four cups of simmering water into the pitcher and let it steep for at least 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and discard. Refrigerate the tea until cool.
- To serve, fill glasses with ice and pour the Hemp tea over the ice. You can sweeten with simple syrup or sugar if desired. I personally like it without sweetener, as it has distinct taste!
The lemon flavour is our favourite and I’ve made several batches now, which we find really refreshing!
