Putting Tea in Bee Tea
I'm trying to adapt a bee tea recipe with the interest in providing feed to help bee health instead of just feeding sugar water to the bees in spring.
My recipe is:
In 1 gallon of water, add:
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
400 grams of Stinging Nettle
8 dandelion flowers
1 - 2 leaves of sage
1 tsp chamomile tea
Simmer the above at 160 degrees for 30 minutes then add 8 lbs of sugar.
Cool to room temperature then add 3 Tbs ProHealth (HBH)
Then I was thinking with all the heal effects of pekoe tea, to add a tea bag of pekoe tea (about 1 tsp) to the simmer mixture.
