(Citrus aurantium) Originating in Southeast Asia, orange trees are now cultivated in many places around the globe. Orange Peel is excellent as an ingredient in potpourri or tea. For an excellent hot tea try combining it with black tea and clove or mix with hibiscus flowers and rosehips for a good iced tea.
Brew 1 tsp of herb in 1 cup of water at 212º - steep for 15 minutes.
