It’s summertime in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As you drive along the country roads, you’ll often see a sign out in the yard of an old farmhouse that reads “Meadow Tea for Sale” sitting beside a picnic cooler. Meadow tea is a refreshing drink made in the summer months by the local Amish and Mennonite communities. And, I’m sharing how to make meadow tea in today’s post.
Even though I grew up on a farm in central Pennsylvania with German roots, I was not familiar with Meadow Tea until I moved to Lancaster County. My good friend, Cindy, introduced me to it first one summer. She has a patch growing in her garden, as do many locals.
As mentioned above, you can pick up some of this tea along the roadside, but you can also find gallons of it in local grocery stores and even some restaurants here in Lancaster County.
