Heart Desire Herbal Tea
Our borage petals comes from northern part of Iran and has been used since ancient times for different remedies and was even added to wine in the medieval times for enhancing courage. Persians steep the dried purple flowers of this herb in hot boiling water with one or two dried limes (Limoo Amani) for relaxation and stress relief. You can replace the dried lime with fresh lime juice to enhance this teas colour and it can be sweetened with rock candy (nabat), agave or honey. The result has a gorgeous red colour and is really quite palatable. Both the colour and the intense lime flavour are the result of lengthy steeping time and short cuts ruin the colour and flavour.
