Honeysuckle Tea Introduction
Honeysuckle, or Lonicera by its Latin name, is an evergreen vine that has over 180 different species, but the most famous one is Japanese Honeysuckle. Nowadays, it grows all over the world and is very adaptable, making it a great herb to have in your garden.
The honeysuckle flowers are picked in the summer period, when the flowers are pure white color. When they start to turn yellow, the aroma is gradually lost so the best quality tea is made from white flowers. They have a unique, elegantly thin elongated shape, and when they’re dry, they look almost weed-like.
When the tea is steeped, you will notice a mild yellow color start to appear. The smell is quite sweet and earthy and the flavor is floral and herbal with a touch of bitterness. All those components mix together to create a very natural tea that fits different tastes. You can use honeysuckle tea to make your own blend by mixing it with green, oolong, or white tea. It will add that special flavor to the much loved classical teas. So you actually get a lot of different teas and flavors with honeysuckle and you can create your own tea that is catering to your own particular preference.
The fun thing about herbs is that they are not only good for you and a great beverage to drink, but they also have their unique history and meanings. This is what gives another dimension to the tea you’re drinking and enhances the whole experience. Honeysuckle is no exception, and its flowers have many symbolic meanings and were very important for many different cultures and religions.
Most importantly, honeysuckle flowers signify happiness, that elusive emotion we’re all trying to achieve and cherish so much. This is what was believed in Victorian times and they thought honeysuckle brings joy and ease of living, without many problems. It is also connected to affection, devotion, sweetness, and lover’s embrace. The reason for that is the vine-like properties of this plant that hangs on tightly to its surroundings, like a lover holding us close. Some folk tales speak about bringing a honeysuckle flower in bloom into your house if you want to get married soon. The Chinese believed that the sweet aroma coming from your garden will make you dream passionate dreams.

How To Brew / Prepare Honeysuckle Tea?
When you make honeysuckle tea, you first want to make sure that your tea is high-quality. The way you can check that is by looking at the tea – if the dried flowers are white and bright, that means you have high-quality honeysuckle tea.
However, if the flowers are dark brown, that means that the quality is poor. To prepare it, take two or three grams of honeysuckle tea and place it in the cup, then pour 90°C hot water over it and add a lid to prevent the loss of the aroma. Brew the tea for three minutes and your honeysuckle tea is ready to drink! During summertime, you can also make iced honeysuckle tea. The preparation is the same, you just have to cool it down after your brew it and add some ice.
