Calcium Kaleidoscope Herbal Tea #2

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This blend of fresh herbs is safe for children and is calcium-rich. I mix it with my 3 yo's juice and he hasn't noticed. I make 2 quarts, add honey and cool for ice tea. Serving size depends on how much you decide to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup rose hips
  • 12 cup lemon balm
  • 12 cup oat straw
  • 14 cup nettles
  • 14 cup raspberry leaf
  • 12 ceylon cinnamon stick, crushed into pieces
  • 1 pinch stevia


  1. Mix and keep in air-tight, glass, stainless steel or ceramic container. If stored properly, it will last 3-6 months.
  2. Use the soft stick cinnamon, as it crushes better.
  3. Use 1 1/2 tsp per single serving (6-8 oz water.).
  4. If you want to make a larger amount in a pot, boil the amount of water and then add 1 1/2 tsp PER SERVING to the water.
  5. Turn off the heat and let steep for 10-20 minutes (I usually do 20).
  6. Strain, add sweetener and place in a pitcher to cool in the fridge (or drink as hot tea.)
  7. Or, make up as a gift by putting the herb blend in a pretty container.
