Globe Amaranth Tea


The first time I saw Globe Amaranth blossoms in tea was at The Green Room in downtown Carlisle (if you haven’t been there, it’s most definitely worth the trip!). I’d always been charmed by the delicate, colorful blossoms, and after seeing them in blooming tea, I decided to grow them for the CSA. I’ve since learned that these tiny flowers are used in teas for clearing the liver, bringing blood pressure down and nourishing healthy skin. While I can’t speak to how well they work in this capacity, they certainly do make a charming cup of tea.  And the directions are simple: For Globe Amaranth tea, add blossoms to hot water and steep for several minutes before serving.
