Place the Wood Sorrel in a 1-liter mason jar with the water. Put on lid and screw cap and let sit 4-8 hours (i.e., make an infusion). Strain out herb. Add in stevia to sweeten, and, if desired, the lemon juice. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate before serving. Keep remainders refrigerated up to 3 days.
There are different varieties of Wood Sorrel, they all have a lemony taste. You could also try this with dried Sheep Sorrel (rumex acetosella) leaves & stems.
Counter-indication: as the name oxalis implies, Wood Sorrel leaves are high in oxalic acid, so not for those prone to kidney stones.
Variation: Sun Tea. You can make this as a sun tea instead. Simply use fresh herb, cover with boiling water and let sit 4-8 hours, then strain. Drink as is, serve chilled, or add Lemonade/Lemon Water, as specified below.
Variation Lemon & Wood Sorrel. Use 1 part Lemonade OR 1 part Lemon Water (recipes below, these taste great just on their own!) to 1 part Wood Sorrel infusion/sun tea (e.g. 1 cup lemonade + 1 cup wood sorrel infusion). Feel free to add more or less of each, according to preference.
---> Add 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2-3 lemons) to 3 and 3/4 cups water. Add stevia if desired to sweeten. Can use lime juice instead.
---> Slice 1 organic lemon and place in a 1-liter mason jar. Add water to the top. Let sit 8 hours or overnight. Strain out liquid. Sweeten with stevia if desired. Can also use freshly sliced lime instead.
Refreshing and thirst-quenching, feel free to serve over ice on a hot summer's day.
As always, Enjoy :)
