Lemongrass-Lavender Green Sun Tea

Not your Mama's Sun Tea, this Lemongrass-Lavender Green Sun Tea has refreshing unexpected flavors perking up the Dog Days of Summer. Though fresh lemongrass and lavender may be used, dried herbs are more readily found in most areas. When using dried lavender, please ensure it is for culinary use and not treated for use in decorative potpourri which is inedible.
