    I just made this with dried echinacea petals from my garden, and sucanat. My youngest daughter is feeling under the weather, so she was most appreciative. Thanks for the help Sharon!

    Another WONDERFUL tea from Sharon! I made this with echinacea tea bags and Blue Agave nectar. It turns red when you add the lemon juice. I really enjoyed this ZIPPY ZINGY DELIGHT! Made for the Please Review tag game.

    FYI-just saw something like this in Trader Joe's bottled and you drink it cold. I thougth I'd mention it here since I just tried it in the store yesterday (could be a new product):)
