Tea Made with Clover
Now Playing: Clover Tea
Topic: Recipes

Have you ever seen clover growing in your yard?

First get your parents to help you pick 3 to 6 blossoms

for each cup of tea. Then add them to 1 cup of water that has boiled.

Let steep or soak for 5 to 10 minutes.

Next take the flowers and stems out of the hot water.

Add honey or sugar and enjoy your cup of clover tea.

This makes 1 cup of hot tea. If you want more ...

multiple 3 times how many cups you want to make.

You can also refrigerate and have this green tea for later over ice.

How did this happen?

What are the Magnolia Awards?

First, many books are sent to librarians on this committee from authors and publishers. Then the librarians choose which 10 books they think their reading audience will like the best in each category. Here is the best part... students get to vote and choose which book they like the best.

Check out the winners and then look to see which books students get to vote on next year for the 2021 Magnolia Book Award.
