  • Place petals in a heavy saucepan along with the water, lemon slices, and vanilla bean.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for 6 hours.
  • Strain dandelion tea through cheesecloth and discard solids.
  • Place remaining liquid in a heavy saucepan and bring to a low boil. Gradually add sugar while stirring until sugar is dissolved. Lower heat and let simmer to desired syrupy thickness (may take up to 4 hours).
