  1. Pick dandelion flowers during the daylight while in full bloom, remove petals, then measure petals only; discard the green stem parts.
  2. Place petals in a heavy saucepan along with the water, lemon slices, and vanilla bean.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for 6 hours.
  4. Strain dandelion tea through cheesecloth and discard solids.
  5. Place remaining liquid in a heavy saucepan and bring to a low boil. Gradually add sugar while stirring until sugar is dissolved. Lower heat and let simmer to desired syrupy thickness (may take up to 4 hours).
