Lilac Iced Tea

  • Author: Raj -
  • Yield: 3-4 cups 1x


Beautifully fragrant tea to start off summer!


  • 23 cups (packed) lilac flowers (all greenery removed)
  • 1 lemon
  • 12 tsp maple syrup
  • 34 cups boiling water


  1. Put flowers in a glass jar.
  2. Add enough boiling water to cover lilacs (3-4 cups).
  3. Soak overnight.
  4. Strain out flowers.
  5. If resulting amber-colored tea, or lilac water, is too strong or bitter, water down as needed.
  6. Add maple syrup (approximately 1/2 tsp per cup).
  7. Squeeze in juice from lemon (approximately 1/2 tsp per cup).
  8. Stir and serve chilled (refrigerate and/or use ice cubes).


This lilac water can be used to add subtle flavor to other dishes (stay tuned…).
